Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

House Sparrows, Too :(

Unfortunately, I seem to have attracted a pair of house sparrows, too. :( Maybe I won't feed over the summer. I've never seen the house sparrows come to black oil sunflower seeds before. ~sigh~

There are ways to keep the killer sparrows from the nesting boxes. Fish line wrapped around nails draping over the roof down beside the holes and dangling with weights keeps them away and doesn't bother the blue birds in the least.

Thanks for the advice, Anonymous. I've not see the house sparrows since, but I will definitely keep your suggestion in mind.

(I almost lost your comment due to blogger issue--when I tried to publish it, message came up saying it no longer existed...luckily it was e-mailed to me, so I was able to post it anyway.

Sorry for the delay.)
