How to avoid housing House Sparrows? (1 Viewer)

Hi everyone, first time here. I have a feeder outside and have been graced by many types of backyard birds and I hope to encourage some nesting nearby now. I have seen house sparrows in the area, so I was wondering if you guys know what structures House Sparrows DONT use for their nests because they are invasive where I live.
I heard for example, a horizontal wooden board would help Mourning Pigeons. Any structure or object I can add outside to encourage any backyard bird to nest would be a wonderful suggestion, not only looking for a nest /box/.
