Thats the easiest way and very humane also.

The guys at the emergency ward will HURT themselves laughing!
...well, OK, I did it with ice-cold water (VERY non-sterile!) which caused an immediate weird and scary-looking reaction on my finger, which I decided NOT to ignore. I hate to think if it had been air!
I now use chloroform for killing birds. No fuss, no muss, very peaceful and humane. It was recommended in an avian veterinary text that I used to use frequently.

Gently squeeze him under his wings with thumb and middle finger , he will last for about 15 seconds or less! don't have to press hard! thats the most human way I have found! Use the other hand to hold on top to keep it from flapping and damaging feathers. Tony

If you don't leave an email address your a fag.
A syringe filled with alcohol injected into lung heart area, about thiry cc's will kill bird in thirty seconds, no struggling or movement at all. Alcohol poisoning kills very fast. Think about that one next time you drink. LoL

Those all sound like good answers but if you don't have a syringe lying around, you could drown it in a bucket of water. I guess it would be a little trouble to dry afterwords. I even did in a woodchuck this way. When trapping I use water whenever I can for coons, if I catch them at the creek bank, in they go with a boot on the head till the bubbles stop.
