PostSubject: Eurasian Tree Sparrow   Sun Apr 18, 2010 11:30 am

Anyone have thoughts on these?

They look a heck of a lot like the HOSP, sound like a HOSP, nest like a HOSP but according to my research on the net, are not as aggressive as a HOSP.

If so, I hope I was not putting a lot of lead pellets into them over the years...

edit... just looked at their range and it seems that chances of me dispatching an Eurasian Tree Sparrow are pretty slim.

While they aren't as widespread as the hosp, they are protected so be careful. When in doubt, don't shoot! From the sounds of it you are doing good research on the subject so I'm sure you'll be ok. If you ever aren't 100% sure that what you're shooting is your desired target, just live trap the sucker and get a closer look.
