Recipe by Cheri B

Baked wild bird is really moist cooked in gravy, we like it with cooked rice spooning the gravy over the Rice or Mashed potatoes. I have another recipe here in the scraps some where, it uses a lot more ingredients but better. I will post it asap, but I think it is in the shed for the winter with my Italian recipes.
