Quite literally any shotgun can be used for bird hunting. Are you asking about the legalities around a shotgun used for bird hunting? Or are you asking about a particular style like pump or semi-auto?

A birdshot cartridge is often used when hunting most birds, but they can be fired from nearly any shotgun out there. Are you wondering about that?
