Nature taking it's course but I'm just as happy as a flock of approximately 73 House Sparrows has taken over the feeder area on this side of the house and they have run off all of the native birds.
I've never had that happen before. In my previous experience the House Sparrows and native birds coexist at the feeders. Not this group.

...grabbed the jar by the rim and walked off right. Just as he disappeared into the dark I heard the cracking of plastic. Butch was off for a tasty peanut butter treat.
