Yes i have seen this happen. (she has seen sparrows killing sparrows!)
we have bird houses set up we love our garden sparrows and love watching them nest,but this year we had sparrows killing other sparrows and killing all oue little baby sparrows as well.
now all the sparrows have left their houses and our yard, it was a very sad thing to watch
Char sent me her story of what she had seen. Previously she had asked about sparrows killing sparrows. Click the link below if you would like to read it.
You have seen it happen! Can I ask where you live? The world of birds is so strange isn’t it? I know robins fight robins, and I have found out that sparrows can be thugs, but sparrows killing sparrows!! Also sparrows killing young sparrows. I wonder if some where house sparrows and some where tree sparrows. I wonder if there was a shortage of food and so they killed to get the food – but that does not really make sense does it?
I am sure it would have been sad to watch. You think of spring as being a time of re birth not a time of slaughter. Think of all the other birds that are toiling to feed their young and watch the other fledglings as they visit your garden and grow and surive. Trisha
Please get in touch if you have seen or heard of this happening.
