Raising Sparrows

It has not all been “Doom and Gloom” today. There has been a lot of this sort of thing going on……

We haven’t actually had juvenile House Sparrows yet have we?

  1. Thanks Diana. We have hundreds of Sparrows here and I think this is our second brood. I had to stop feeding them bird seed, the Sparrows alone were emptying the feeder every four hours. I decided it wasn’t very good value for money, too many shells, not enough food. They still eat everything else but a bit slower. πŸ™‚

  2. Wonderful set of images Colin … I had about 30 house sparrows visiting my 4 feeders on a regular basis I know only too well how quick they empty them, I’ve emptied my feeders now though as we head into the summer as insects are in abundance now which is just as well as it’s very costly when the sparrows pillage the feeders … Lol … But I would not have it any other way as I love them πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Marco. I am quite lucky in that I am allowed to pillage the farm shop for bird food to feed the farm birds. They like me doing that and they get me wholesale prices on stuff that I want and let me take nuts for my Badgers. It all works out quite well πŸ™‚

  3. Nice set of images. We have no shortage of house sparrows either. We have one nest busy again after a brood, we can see them going in under the cowshed roof from the kitchen window.
