Susan, I am not sure there is really anything you can do. The house sparrow is an urban bird and I think they are here to stay so sit back and enjoy!

from eddiebett on YouTube - and check out the little girl with the flash light giving a "Live" report!!!
"The Rescue
On the morning of May 18, 2011, my wife noticed a deer in our yard that appeared to be frantically looking for something in the rocks that form a wall on our property line in Brush Prairie, WA.

When we first went out with our neighbors, we didn't see anything, but the deer wouldn't leave our yard. We went back to our house and watched; after a few minutes the deer came back.

We went out to the area the deer was concentrating on and could hear a baby fawn crying in the rocks. We moved some of the rocks and smaller boulders and saw a baby fawn's face in the rocks. He had apparently fallen in one of the gaps and was now trapped. The larger boulders were too heavy to move, and we didn't want the rocks cave in on the baby deer.

We called our Clark County Fire District 3.

The B Shift team came out; they were able to move the larger rocks out of the way with the Jaws of Life enough to be able to reach in a pull the baby fawn out
and reunite it with its momma. The fawn, maybe stuck in their most of the night, quickly went to nurse its momma.

One of our neighbors took some video clips of the fire department's rescue. I edited the clips into this short clip. After sharing it with some friends they thought that it was just too cute not to share with more people; my neighbor agreed to let me upload it."

I think most of us who volunteer at any kind of wildlife rehabilitation center, were touched by a particular incident. For me, it was when our peregrine fledgling Magee collided with a truck and was transported to For the Birds of Indiana to begin his recovery. Their website said they could use more hands and the rest is history!

Laura's latest blog entry.

The Tour Continues…Destination: Nashville IN | Falcon Blog | The Indianapolis Star | indystar.com

I was there and Laura did not overstate when she said it was awesome!!! Besides sharing their knowledge and passion for these magnificent creatures, all injected bit of humor. Most memorable for me was the comparison of different raptors to different automobiles. They compared the redtailed hawk to the F150 pick up truck - not real flashy, but dependable to get the job done. The barred owl, on the other hand, was more like an old Volkswagen bus with peace symbols painted on it - pretty laid back! We all "hooted" with laughter!!

The link includes a picture of Laura holding a falcon and afterwards her feet hardly touched the ground. She was on cloud 9 the rest of the day! Image
. :upsidedownleaf: In addition to seeing the raptors, we experienced the beauty of autumn with all the beautiful turning leaves in the hills of Brown County, where Nashville is located.

On March 2, 2010, I picked up a young Western Gull from Berkeley Animal Services. He had been caught on the monofilament strung across the Berkeley Transfer Station. The lines were strung to keep out birds. But this idea didn't work and many gulls were grievously injured and/or died.

Here's a video of the gull I picked up:

Fortunately, he recovered from his injuries:

I wrote a letter (as a Berkeley resident, not as a representative of IBRRC) to the Mayor and all of the City Council Members, the head of Public Works, and the Director of animal Services about the situation. Apparently, it caused quite a stir. Later that year, Jay Holcomb, Berkeley Council Member Kriss Worthington, and I met with staff at the transfer station. On Mr. Holcomb's recommendation, mylar ribbons were strung from the lines. It was hoped that their flashing in the wind would scare off the gulls. Not so. The gulls still came, were entangled, were picked up by Berkeley Animal Services, and were transferred to our hospital.

Today I wrote another letter to Tom Bates, to be sent by our new Executive Director, Paul Kelway, over his signature.

I have emailed the document to Paul, along with copies to the Wildlife Rehab Manager and Assistant Wildlife Rehab Manager.

The letter includes a brief history of gulls being caught on the lines over the Transfer Station (most call it the dump) with a proposal for a meeting between Paul and the Mayor to discuss the situation and look for another solution to keep the birds out of the dump without harming them.

Statistics have been gathered from both Animal Services and IBRRC (each bird brought to the hospital has an individual record). The stats will be included with the letter. The Western Gull is a federally protected bird.

Especially loved the second video beans.

I am a little confused. In the narrative of the first video, I got the impression that the mylar worked, but in your narrative here, it sounds like you are still looking for a solution. Good luck to you in your negotiations to end this problem. It appears that "they" are receptive to trying additional ideas to keep the birds from becoming entangled.

The mylar worked at first -- then a few weeks later, another entangled gull! We had such high hopes. It has worked with songbirds, but gulls seem to be more determined.

that is what I figured happened, but wanted to make sure I just wasn't misunderstanding something. That is truly a shame. I wish I had a solution. Keep us posted beans.

Now these are the kind of things that make me get goosebumps watching so many wonderful caring people

Video from the field
Ospreys, setting more records with a little help from mankind
by Ben Wurst, Habitat Program Manager


Last year we installed or relocated a total of 17 osprey nesting platforms. This year we installed or moved another 21. In 2011 there were 25 new pairs, some of which, that nested on these new platforms. This year was another record setting year for ospreys in New Jersey. We recorded an average of 2.07 young per active nest, a new record. We last documented the size of population at 486 nesting pairs in 2009 when we conducted a statewide census......................
More here and video of the installation of a nest
