    Well... Ducks and Geese are quite commonplace in France. You can find duck's magret, aiguilllette or confit in almost every French supermarket, and this tells a lot, even if I prefer to buy it on a local popular market. Guinea fowls are also very easy to find. You can also find quails in some areas, and they're considered to be a delicacy.

    Sometimes, you can also buy ostrich filets, but a lot of them are imported and hence frozen. As far as I remember -I've been invited in Pretoria last year-, ostrich meat is quite commonplace in South Africa... the same way that duck meat is in France.
    In Morocco... some of the best "tagines" are prepared with pigeon or dove, and grapes.

    If Moroccan pigeons are cleaner than American pigeons, I'd eat that.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Well...

    Cleanliness of food (and especially meat) is a very relative concept in Africa... but to tell the truth, it can't be worst than industrial stock-breeding.

    Fortunately, the way tagine are traditionally used in Morocco means your dish will have been cooked in its own steam during at least half an hour. And it will be served very hot.
    So you can be sure that there will be no surviving bacteria or germ inside the earthenware pot. With tagines, even goat or camel meat can become tender and (almost) edible.

    This way, pigeons are delicious, especially when they are cooked along with grapes and almonds, and served with lemons, couscous and honey. I'd say it tastes halfway between chicken and duck legs. But you have to be patient to retrieve the meat since squabs aren't usually very large.

    Moroccan pastillas are also prepared most of the time with pigeon meat, and I would recommend that you could taste some if you have the opportunity.

    Red-tailed hawks are cool, too, though.

    Love this bird love! They really can be super cute.

    Peep!
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
