I had a house sparrow come over from a farm and nest in box that tree swallows take each year.I have been throwing out h.s. nest and eggs each time they nest.I check this box each month because its 19 miles away.I don't want too let the h.s. fledge.Next time I will needle person h.s. eggs let nest in so t.s. don't try too nest. The dead t.s. had a leg band on it but I haven't got a report back. I would like too show all the h.s. lovers what kind of a bird they are. Heck 95 % of the people don't know what a h.s. is . :)
