The key to hassle-free importation of birds is ensuring they have been processed correctly, with at least one wing still attached for identification, as you can see in the photo. You've heard me preach a lot about using the whole bird and ideally, I'd do just that, but I had to make some concessions for the size of my carry-on cooler, so on this trip the birds got breasted instead. That allowed me to take a full three-day possession limit home as allowed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, versus just a single day's limit. At customs, I'll be asked to fill out a declaration form, listing the number and species of birds being imported. Other than that, I'm anticipating no problems coming across the border.
