English Sparrow (pest) eradication from bird feeder

English Sparrow (pest) eradication from bird feeder Video Clips. Duration : 8.20 Mins.

Good information on house sparrows. "Without question the most deplorable event in the history of American ornithology was the introduction of the English Sparrow." -WL Dawson, The Birds of Ohio, 1903 This video shows the removal (by hunting) of English (House) Sparrows from a feeder for the purpose of creating a friendlier environment for native song birds. This method equals instant death for the birds in question - much better than poisoning or netting. This was one of 4 trips I made to this location. By the end of the fourth trip, the English sparrow numbers were reduced significantly enough so that they no longer "swarmed" the feeder. Native song birds returned in healthy numbers. I estimated I shot around 200 in total (over the 4 days). I also tore sparrow nests out of the trees and barns. I hit 'em like a ton of bricks. And the result was that there were song birds all over that bird feeder at the end of day 4. (the video was filmed on day 3). I moved around this location, shooting at 3 or 4 "hot spots". This spot was just the easiest to film. Equipment details: Gun - Edgun Matador .22 PCP air rifle Scope - Hawke Sidewinder 30 6.5-20x (video at 10x) Pellets - JSB 18.1g shooting at 920 fps (34 ft/lbs energy) [It goes without saying that] All birds were legally shot, and all are exotic species. I can't say this enough - if you have a problem with hunting do NOT watch this video. Friends can comment without approval. All others will be ...
