New in NY with a question.

I rescued a male cat about two years ago(he was about 3 days old, so we bottle fed him and the works). It was our intention to keep him as an inside cat but Jingles had other plans. In the last three months he has resorted to popping out screens to get outside, one time hurting his pads because he jumped out of the second story. We've been reluctantly letting him out a little at a time. Three weeks ago he began hunting, starting with moths, moving on to butterflies, caught his first mole last week and a bird. This morning, to our dismay, he not only caught a bird....he brought it inside half alive and when my husband tried to get to it, Jingles ran outside with it. He started out laying proudly next to his trophy....but eventually began eating it. He eventually at the entire bird from beak to tail....feathers and all. I am horrified as I've never seen a cat do this. My bigger concern is can he/we get sick from eating wild birds? I am bringing him to get his shots updated, but what else do I need to do? this normal???
