Thanks Michael. Is this the bierd many hate/kills other bierds?

House Sparrows are seed-eaters, so no threat to other birds. Increasingly rare in our part of Dorset, but we've seen just a couple about lately.
Edit : You may be thinking of Sparrow Hawk...?

I haven't seen evidence of that in my area...
That being said, they seem to hate bluebirds and purple martins (according to a quick google search).
They haven't been keeping any other birds from my feeders, so maybe it just has an ongoing feud with other birds over similar nesting habits.

Yes it is Doc. It's one of the two major invasive species, the other being the European Starling, who compete with and kill or drive out native species such as your Bluebirds and various woodpeckers.

Thanks! There are 6-7 in my yard at any given time, but as soon as I walk near the door or a window they take off like they were set on fire.

Paul I am armed. But never seen one in my backyard. I'd want to double up on the sureness before pulling the trigger.
Interesting that I don't have a problem with a Sparrow Hawk or Cooper's having their fill.....why is that?

Intersting information wrt/ House Sparrows, didn't realize that they were invasive. Starlings are everywhere here, and quite annoying. Canadian Geese too, if I'm not mistaken?
