Several years ago I observed House Sparrows searching busily around the
radiator grilles and wheel trims of parked cars in the safeway carpark
at Camberwell Junction (Melbourne's eastern suburbs). A car pulled in
which had been through a swarm of locusts - locust remains, legs etc,
stuck all over it and bonnet and windscreen heavily splashed with locust
soup. In no time the entire Sparrow population of the area were all over
it, grabbing legs, bodies etc and chipping off all the dried locust
juice. A whole lot of cheeping and more Sparrows arriving every minute.
Quite a feeding frenzy.
