I used to when I was a teenager. My granny would either fry them or bake them in cornbread stuffing. Sure was good!

My pop-up camper has a hole in the ac cover.
I have been meaning to fix it but you know how that goes.

Last year I had to take the cover off and clean out a starling nest.
It had a couple eggs and a couple babies when I did it.

This year it had TWO nests !!
One in the front and one in the back.
They had a five gallon bucket of crap up in there !!

Fixed now and I hate those birds.

There are a ton of old world, English recipes for them. Sparrow Pye (pie) etc, calling for 30 sparrow breasts. I've been plucking them out whole like doves and roasting them on the grill or sauteing in butter. I have a tiny cast iron skillet that is perfect for such tasks. If you pluck them, you can make a meal out of just a few. If breasting, its going to take a whole lot.

I hate them...I wish Brown headed Cowbirds will also get on the "take care of them" list.
