We have several bird feeders in our back yard and every day for the past week we have had dead sparrows, one day 4. Their beaks and sometimes their heads have been pecked or eaten off. We haven’t seen them kill each other but they certainly do fight constantly. We are thinking of taking down the feeders to prevent the killing.
This sounds horrible, especially when it should be a time of nesting and new life.
It may be a good idea to take the feeders down, but then would these attacks happen somewhere else.
It may not be sparrows.

There seems to be a lot of mayhem going on in our civilised gardens. Nature.
