Are house sparrows on a decline in numbers, because gardens are lacking food supply's ?

  1. Yes, there should be more garden feeders.

    As well as all the usual birds, we have…...parrots.
    Great bullies that command the bird table.
    Sight to see!

    Personally, I prefer Italian, French, Spanish and Greek birds to British ones.
    Not to mention that they look more attractive in warmer climes too.

    Recently a Sparrow hawk swooped over my fence at the bottom of my garden.
    I don't know who was the more startled when it saw me.
    You should have seen the swerve!

    The lack of human mobilisation in recent times has given way to an increased breeding of most bird species.
    Regrettably, this has particularly included more of the species which are considered pests.
    I refer to pigeons, magpies and crows mainly. Their numbers have multiplied considerably.
    The consequence of this is that they are now 'polluting' the skies with both noxious sounds and excreta.
    If any creatures should be culled then I unhesitatingly suggest it is these abhorrent 'airborne vermin'!

    You just get more pretentious every day WP. Nobody is buying it fella, just give up and save what residue of self respect you have.

    Thats a bit harsh! :O all birds welcome
    Also magpies are very beautiful in colour when the shine catches the feathers.
    Pigeon's are funny to watch and I had two twins born and now feeding together, watching each others back... I think wicked: I used a small rubber from the top of my bird pencil to erase this idea of ...:eek: shocking

    Thank you

    Read my Profile status: it describes you to a 't'. All the P's.
    Try to think independently of others. It might, just might, gain you more respect.

    :) Greedy pigeons have there favourite places to feed at, and they are quite protective about who they share this area with I've noticed. I've really enjoyed watching the pidgion this year, previously I was disappointed that's all I would see lading and feeding. This year's feeds have seen coal tits for the first time and the little white dove more recently just Wonderful.
    I've also had a regular blackbird doing it's thing. I think he owns the whole area tho and overlooks all who visit the patch
    Yes mornings this spring have been amazing with sound as u said Megs the best time for me too is just before the sunrise. ..... Hopes the chaff,gets lucky next time
    :)
