If this is actually true (- I have trouble believing sparrows would use cig
butts - but I guess my locals are well supplied with feathers from my
chooks! Round here (inner Melbourne) it is the Mynahs that collect litter -
mostly plastic film, including lots of the plastic crap from cigarette
packages that grubby smokers also like to dump! to build their nests) maybe
we have an alternative explanation for sparrow decline in UK - Nicotine (and
all the other thousands of chemical nasties) poisoning of nest building
birds and their chicks!!!
