seagull apparently is very oily and not very tasty but could sustain someone in need. I think the St Kilda islanders used to net and eat them when the islands were occupied but they had little else to eat. but these were seagulls fed on wild fish, not on town scrapheaps so they may taste different.
anyway, seagulls are protected so you can't just go out and shoot one to eat! councils are allowed to cull them but they use poison bait so no way would you want to eat one of those!

DF3 is correct- I had croc in New orleans last year and it tastes like fishy meat. I like strong flavours generally and can tolerate most things but this really turned my stomach.
FB - I did manage to eat guinea pig in peru, and it's very good indeed. The tender bits are a little like frog's legs and the more well done pieces more like fried chicken. I would eat it again, though I'd probably ask for it not to be served 'spatchcock'.
I wonder who was the first person ever to try guinea pig?
That might be gannet you're talking about, fb, although I could be wrong. Apparently gannet flesh is oily and greasy and tastes strongly of fish. If the bird's diet influences the taste of its flesh then the feckin' seagulls in St Ives should by that logic taste of pasty.
probably the same for gannet as seagull Mutts
albatross on a stick anyone??
Snap - all the guniea pigs I saw for eating were spatchcock - skewer rammed up it's arse and out of the mouth and then bbq'd. and there were loads of live ones squeaking their way around the kitchen of this roadside cafe in Peru.
Seagull eggs are fine. I've had them boiled, and in cakes.
It's cat recipes we really need though.
I hear you can get steaming poo in the philipines which is nice with spinich.
