magpies

Magpies, Crows, Jackdaws. These are killed with crossbow-bolts with broad unsharpened points, and with light crossbows you can take crows which are perched on branches, but for those in the nest you need to draw large bolts to knock down nest and all. They should be singed, then parboiled with bacon, then cut in pieces, and fry with eggs like mincemeat.
