I too have noted the lack of House Sparrows and have been remarking on it to those who might be interested in such things for over a year now.  About the only places that seem to guarantee a sighting are the upper deck of the Belconnen Mall car park and the immediate vicinity of the visitor’s book at the Fyshwick Treatment Works.


They were common in my neighbourhood (lower Flynn) until the dreaded Common (Indian) Myna invasion which started about three years ago.  The two appear to compete for nesting spaces.
