G'day all,
Some time back, as part of a previous discussion on this mailing list, no one could provide any statistics that sparrow had displaced any native birds
Urbanisation of Australia, has provided a new habitat that the Sparrows have colonised

Extract-----  I find myself oddly pleased when I see excellent numbers of feral House Sparrows in our country towns these days.
Apart from the fact that they are a delightful and fascinating species, it's good to know that we are keeping them alive in case they become extinct in the UK.
