We have seen sparrows in our Holder garden on a daily basis in the 4+ years that we have lived here.
Yesterday my wife counted a dozen.  The most that I have seen is 20+.  There are plenty of juveniles so breeding does not appear to be a problem, even though we also regularly get Common Mynas (maximum no was 25+).  Other exotics include blackbirds, rock dove, spotted dove [note new name] and the occasional starling.
But we do get natives too, particularly parrots.  I was able to add red rumps to our list a couple of weeks ago.
