Cats killing birds

I have a pair of catsm male and female, aged 4. Since they were kittens they have hunted birds, rats, and mice and naturally they bring the 'presents' to us. I understand this is a natural instinct for cats, but is there some way to get them to stop or encourage them to outgrow this practice? We have put bells on them and overfed them to no avail. We had hoped they would outgrow it. Any ideas?

I've had cats my whole life and these are the only two hat have carried on making a habit of it. Most of the cats were too lazy/too well fed/too ???. The one cat that did hunt only brought in mice, but even he stopped around the age of 3. These two cats of mine will be 5 this summer and don't show any sign of letting up.
