After doing research yesterday on the House Sparrows, I have decided I do not like them anymore. They are bad for local birds and I do not want them at the feeders. So, I read online a way to try to deter them. I got rid of the seed I bought which had millet and corn and seeds. I sprinkled that all over the forest edge. Then, I replaced it with premium black oil sunfloweer seeds. And every time the house sparrows have come by since — I chase them away. I simply do not want to facilitate their misbehavior. I know crows eat other little birds too but they do not decimate populations of local birds. I just do not want the house sparrows around anymore.
And so I’ve made up my mind. Wish me luck getting rid of them and keeping them away.
