This robin fell victim to a threat far more prevalent than lead
ammunition: a window. I helped it recover, and I'm pleased
to report that it flew back into the wild later that day.
Readers of my old blog may remember that I stopped hunting with lead ammo three years ago, but that doesn't mean I love some of the lead-banners' rhetoric.
If anything, it has made me even more aware of - and pissed off about - the stunning hypocrisy about man-made things that kill birds.
Check out my rant on this topic in this month's column in Shotgun Life.
