Our strategy for Ham ’em High level 12-1 is to fire the first Yellow bird just over the first baby pig, causing the left side of the structure to collapse. Use the next two Yellow birds to reach the small pig at the bottom of the right structure. The score in the video below is 74,750.
There is 4 yellow birds with the 3.4.0 version!
not only that, but the layout is similar but rather different, to wit, within 10 attempts got to 90810 by firing straight ahead twice, the 1st a bit higher than the 2nd. the destruction looked nothing special, but that score is already more than 10k above my previous best for this level (into which i had put real effort).
Nice one. Easy one birder but up to now that yields around 80k. However there are a lot of points in the wood, the game knows that and closes down quickly. What I did was get the one birder and quickly fire off the second bird to destroy as much wood as possible.
I did it with 3 birds.
I was stuck around 91k with 2 birds and a lot of tries, then start flinging the third one out of spite. At this point I got 88k twice in a row.
So I decided to aim the first bird a little higher to maximize damages. Here is the trajectory.
The second and third bird are then released in quick succession with a lower trajectory, and this the result for my best score.
Even if the best one is with an almost complete destruction, I was able to get a lot of 91k this way in a very short time.
Here is the highscore screenshot.
Hope it helps.
This is easier now. Thank you @bonneypattycat for the heads up in your recent post. Two birds for 93k. I deliberately missed the first bird so as to have a second shot into the wood without timing out. I also used all four birds to try and see how much destruction was feasible. With two bits of wood left I managed 73k.
Sorry my last comment should read 83k not 73k. That said I believe there are several more k in here. Forgot to say I speeded up yellow immediately.
I agree, a bit easier than before. I increased my score from 93k to high 96k.
Different options to get at least 90k:
The highest scores are obtained with two birds as described by @steviep147 . The trick is indeed to deliberatly miss the first bird and destroy and damage as much wood pieces as possible. Most importantly, the whole structure must fall leftwise to get ready for the second bird which must be sent flat and activated immediately. With some luck, 98k is feasible in my opinion..
93k is possible with 3 birds and 90k with 4 birds if you get rid off all wood pieces.
Here is a screenshot of my top score of 96930
Hope this helps. Good luck!
97280 for the daily challenge.
The trick here is to flatten the structure with the first bird. You can see three long horizontal planks behind eachother near the bottom. I aim the first bird slightly up, speeding him through as many of the small pieces as possible and, crucially, breaking the last 2 long planks like so.
The bottom left part should be pushed over here, at least it did so in my best tries. Accelerate the next bird immediately so he flies very low over the stones, through the first long plank and hopefully (50/50?) all the way to the back. See the next picture.

Good strategy @angrychicken but my thumb isn’t twitching fast enough. Whaaaaa!!!
I did it like @angrychicken Breaking the two long planks is important, plus unless things shift to the left, you will be only able to get about 92K. I also used the tip from @comex666 and activated immediately on both shots.
@sweetp for the underdog https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/stocktoad/album/picture/21447/
Thanks @angrychicken, just like you described. I used a similar trajectory for the 1st shot, aiming slightly up & accelerating just as the bird reaches the stone.
Then the 2nd with immediate acceleration out of the sling.
Remaining debris –
@sweetp – Happy Birthday!
Thank you very much @karen68! Woot, another puppy for you, too! ?
Aww Man! It looks like I’m very late to a ginormous Puppy Parade! But even worse…I’m late to wishing you @sweetp a Happy Birthday!!!! I logged on and saw all the recent comments up in the right hand corner for this level :-) Congrats to ALL the new Puppy recipients!
But more importantly…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY @sweetp !!!
I hope you had a much deserved wonderful day ;-)
Thank you @lesleyg!
You are so welcome @sweetp :-) I can’t help but feel a bit guilty for contributing to making you even busier having to answer all your Birthday wishes and Puppy Parade comments, tee hee :D
You’re a Rock Star!!!
I also used the strategy described by @angrychicken aiming the first bird similar to his picture and accelerating late. Second bird lower, accelerating from the sling.
Happy birthday @sweetp

Thank you @annach!
For the record. New high score but only by a few hundred.
first activate immediately, hit the middle of the vertical wood in the middle row.
the left tower must go th the left side.
second little bit lower, activate immediately, hit the pig in front, rest is luck.
thx to all for the many details
here a video with 96800
Using the strategy posted by @angrychicken I just scored 97,530 points. Thank you to him for not only the strat, but the pics! Getting the last two long wood planks with the first bird seems to really make a difference, as does having the structure lean towards the pig in the hat.
I have taken two screenshots. The first shows where I aimed the second bird, the amount of destruction & the leftover debris. The second picture is the Tally screen for another puppy.

Good luck and happy flinging to all !!
Congrats to all the new puppy owners today !!!
For the challenge and a sweet little puppy:
Thanks to @angrychicken for the tip on breaking the two long planks, and @comex666 for the immediate activation tip!
I had a tiny glimpse of light between the slingshot straps and activated immediately on the first shot. Second shot through the hat pig on the left, with a very small delay in activation.
I used the @gladvold glimpse of light approach on the first shot with immediate activation on second shot.
The nest website is erratic atm. It took me over a half hour to post my score and this message.
@SweetP I’ll upload my Puppy proof picture later once the site is functioning better.
It took another half hour to upload it but here’s my 12-1 Puppy Proof @SweetP.
BTW, Happy Birthday.
Thank you @rat9, and congrats on your puppy! ?
I used strategy posted by @angrychicken. Thank you very much for the tip.
@sweetp here is screenshot for the puppy https://www.angrybirdsnest.com/members/aleksch/album/picture/21455/
Same strat as @angrychicken but kept fluffing the second shot. Almost gave up, then with minutes to spare on the challenge, finally got a good clear for 98K+ and enough for a puppy. Phew!! Screen shot to follow.

Same two birds as everyone else, so I originally did not post the strategy for this highscore which was achieved in Jan 2017 (as the records say).
99418/2 for top score using Classic. Not entered on leaderboard.
Two birds with Classics using angrychicken’s strat for 100k.
Score proof: https://angrybir.de/3GGfio3
101386/2 in Classics for top spot. One high sweep, one low. Still a fair bit of debris left so could be more to come, with luck.
