200+ Robins on the lawn and I figure a fellow could make a meal. :confused:

That reminds me of high school.  Three of us were coming back to town from hunting and right at the edge of town was a field lightly covered with snow and several hundred starlings.  Looked like your picture, but they were closer together.  We stopped and I opened the choke tube on my Mossberg 20 gauge, stuck the barrel out the window, and fired a shot. (Not the right thing to do, but I was 15 or 16 at the time.)  I expected to see LOTS of dead or wounded starlings, but they all took off.  Not one was hit.  We even walked out into the field and could see where the shot had hit the snow, but not a single drop of blood.  I learned that it might be better to take one well aimed shot than to just spray and pray.
