Sparrows are not a native species. They are dangerous to blue birds and other birds, killing them for nesting rights.
Our bird population has plummeted, due to environmental impact.
And while sparrows may not be welcome everywhere, I love them. They’re tough little birds who were brought to Brooklyn, in the 1800’s, to eat caterpillars.
We think we know what we’re doing, but we never really do. Sparrows took over and caused a lot of problems we never had, because some genius decided having them here was a really good idea.
Sparrows are fun.
