On public radio here a while back there was a program about a bird lover who would build nest boxes to trap the sparrows, and then would twist their necks, since the sparrows are an aggressive invasive species that will kick out the native species.  The interviewer was rather shocked, and the  program got a lot of hate mail.

They are cute to watch.

Mick,

yes we do have them here they are very aggressive. They are one of the leading causes in the reduction of our native bluebirds here in the South Cry.  Alot of people like to set up bluebird houses but when the sparrows move into them nobody wants to kill or remove the sparrow nest which in the end increases the sparrow population and the problem. But I guess you have to give them credit they are an industrious species I see them eating everything and are all over the place.
