I got this recipe when my husband was in the Navy from a neighbor and friend in our complex. I don't know where the name Birds came from except that I suppose they sort of resemble a bird when put together with the toothpicks. My husband and children thought it was very tasty. This recipe can be doubled or cut in half depending on how many people you want to serve ;-)
