You can come catch fish in my stream in my back yard, but I don't think I'd want to eat them. Too much urban chemical activity in the area. They'd probably taste better, though, cause they eat natural fish food.

I tossed a dead bird down onto the stream bank yesterday, food for one of our displaced foxes or coyotes. Food courtesy my dogs, who caught an apparently slow dove. I suppose I could have kept it and eaten it, but didn't feel like learning how to cook one medium-sized bird. Reminds me of the essay in Mama Makes Up Her Mind about eating road kill--late model, Florida tags, intersection of a road and a state highway. This one would be "back yard bird, Edgecliff Village, semi-plucked but no punctures, slobbery with slight bruising."
