Are there any small bird species that are illegal to kill?

    It appears that almost all bird species are protected by federal or state laws, with the exception of pigeons, European starlings and house sparrows.  Permits can be acquired for hunting certain birds.  In addition, if poison is used to kill birds that are legal to kill, it is still illegal if that poison accidentally kills a different kind of bird.

    Yes, lots. As Ashleigh said, federal laws and state laws all over the country protect a majority of bird species with few exceptions. To add on to her answer, I attached a list of endangered bird species, which are, of course, illegal to hunt.
