Too many sparrows at my feeders and nothing else. I have read that house sparrows prevent other cavity nesting birds from settling in an area. I would like some diversity at my feeders. But althouugh I do not like house sparrows habit of killing competing cavity nesters and nestlings, I do not want to kill them as many pro bluebird sites suggest...
