What I have found, in my experiments with feeding egg on the B+B feeder to see if the martins needed any assistance, is that young sparrows and starlings find it very attractive. So, haven't tried this yet in a ground trap, but wanted to let everyone know - this might be a way to get that stubborn sparrow. The downside of trying to help the martins can maybe be turned around to be beneficial. :???:
