I grew up in the eastern suburbs of Brisbane and sparrows were the most common bird in the suburb (as kids we devised a number of devious ways to eradicate them from under the eaves and even in the ceiling of our old Queenslander). I spent 16 years in Tasmania sparrow free and have been back in Brisbane 12 years living in the west (Centenary suburbs). I have never seen a sparrow in this part of Brisbane! However on the weekend I was out at Esk (west of Brisbane) and the place was teeming with sparrows. Begs the question - what has kept them out of Centenary, parts of which have been developed since the late '60's.
