I just "reviewed" another bluebird site, posted by someone on B&B. It is www.bluebirdsforever.com. It's a nice site, but I didn't see any extensive guidelines for dealing with house sparrows. It said, if you find a sparrow nest --and described how they look-- remove it immediately. However, it gave no suggestions for future sparrow problems. And, what surprised me was, the site did mention, "Sparrows may even kill bluebirds just to take over the nestbox." Why that surprises me is, for this person to be very passive, yet the person posted a site that says, "sparrows may even kill bluebirds."

So few of the people on BW believe that sparrows will just wantonly kill bluebirds, for the nest site or not, they just won't accept/believe it. Yet, there it is, in "black and white".

Going out to check on the trail some time tomorrow. Lots of deer mice to deal with... before the birds start nesting.
