I have found three dead chicks on the floor under the roof where my sparrows are nesting in spaces in our roof. Who is throwing them out ? they look perfectly healthy (appart from being dead) but I am sure you know what I mean. For the past few years I have made a real effort to help the sparrows putting up sparrow multi nesting boxes. Also without the wife knowing removing the mesh put up by the last owners to stop them nesting in our roof. Why would the chicks be thrown out like this?
Hiya Gary i was talking to a guy the other week from our local birding group and he mentioned that he had Sparrows doing the same thing and he put it down to the lack of natural food.
