No way

You'd need a 338 Win. Mag. for that bird, thems got tough body armor.
Gun Control-gun con┬Ětrol n. definition 1. The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker received that fatal bullet wound. 2. The ability to hit what you are aiming at.

I would reach into my pocket and select 1 each "cat sneeze" rounds and Aim 5 inches high and crop the bird's head clean off. No-one would hear a sound and wouldn't disturb Mr. Sleeper either!
1. Treat every firearm as if it were loaded.
2. Never point a firearm at anything you do not intend to shoot.
3. Keep the finger off the trigger and firearm on safe until ready to shoot.
4. Know the target and what's beyond it.

Nobody's suggested calling in artillery from a firebase yet..?
I was sure, in this crowd of people who think you need a .454 casull for coyote defense, people would be freaking out about trying to deal with a charging songbird.
Danger close or not, I'm not taking chances.
