Re: Does feeding garden birds do more harm than good?
From my own observations there is one pair of Great Tits and one of Blue Tits. The rest are Sparrows and these seems to be about 20-30 of these that visit my garden feeders. Apparently Sparrows are in decline! I cannot say that is true where I live. One observation that it may be pertinent to mention is, they are all ungrateful creatures, just getting by like all the rest of us. And yes, I do clean the feeding points to inhibit the spread of diseases.
Non visitors to me garden are buzzards that wheel above my home. It is a pleasure to see them and hear their calls. Looking forward to when the Red Kites return. I saw one a year or two ago just about 5 clicks away. So, hopefully not long to wait.
