Song Sparrow and cowbird
Posted 06 June 2012 - 02:47 AM
I've seen a song sparrow every day at the feeder for some time now. Today it showed up with two cowbird fledglings in tow. I felt pretty sorry for the sparrow.

Does anyone know how to deter them? .
There is nothing really that I am aware of, but you can hunt through the laws and find out if they are protected or not. You need to be state specific for this because what they do in one state or even county is not necessarily ok in another.
Personally, I've thrown stones at them. My aim is terrible bad though. If I aim for them, I occasionally hit the tree and it scares them off- for a time. They always come back, though. So the good feeling doesn't last long.
