I don’t get many of these in. The few that I usually get in are those non migrating half tame birds. They are super fat and the skin is really thin like a fat mallard. I got a wild bird in that has thick tough skin. Is this typical of wild birds or do they vary? These golf course birds here are a pain to flesh. I have to be careful how I pick them up because the weight of the skin and wings is enough to tear the skin if not cradled when handling it. This wild bird I could have picked it up by a leg and swung it around.
