Assuming there were no humans on the island, they would initially have seemed stupid because they would have had no natural fear of humans. You only get one chance to make a first impression.
Some early travellers found dodo meat unsavoury, and preferred to eat parrots and pigeons; others described it as tough but good. Some hunted dodos only for their gizzards, as this was considered the most delicious part of the bird. Dodos were easy to catch, but hunters had to be careful not to be bitten by their powerful beaks.

In today's world, anything is possible.
Do you suppose it tastes like chicken?
