Bird Table News is turning into a ‘bird world’ murder mystery, but I feel I should let you all know what readers are seeing in their gardens. That is what a blog is ‘two way communication’
This is from Jen –
the other day my children and I were amazed to see 6 fledgling
sparrows low in my flower bed… the adults were at the feeder and every so often a mother would come and feed a young one….
yesterday there were no sparrows and I went to mow the lawn and found 4 dead fledglings and one dead adult…. they were in bad shape, some had legs missing etc… I thought it was a cat…
but I kept finding bodies and it made me wonder if there was some kind of a fight! Now I’m sure it was sparrows killing sparrows… I will have to take my feeder down…. so sad!
