PHOTOGRAPH ABOVE SHOWS A HOUSE SPARROW
Having been a lover of the house sparrows along with all wildlife. I have now refused to feed them anymore as they have killed 3 fledgling blackbirds in nest for what reason i do not know.
So sad, they pecked them to death then threw them onto the patio.
Thank you for telling us about this Steve. Sparrows killing other birds must go on all the time. But when it happens it must usuallyhappen out of human view.
It has been happening for years as well, as I read about sparrows killing other birds in an old bird book that I have read.
It does make you look at sparrows differently. Instead of thinking of them as being helpless I look at them and think of them as thugs
