Mutton Birds/Titi

In Southland, on islands off Invercargill, it is a big tradition among the Ngai Tahu, no-one else allowed, to pull the chicks of
the Sooty Shearwater which they call Titi, out of their burrows and
eat them, after cooking that is. Thousands of them are taken every year.
Two nights ago I tried them for the first time in my life. They
were delicious and I was surprised.
