I have European Sparrows squatting in my shutters. ******s are ****ting all over the front of my house, porch, waking us up in the morning with their racket, hanging on my window screens and divebombing us when we dare to enjoy our yard. I tried putting wire mesh to close off the entrances, they got around it. Then I got a dummy redtail, and start blasting that youtube at them to try and scare them away. They didn't care.
They do care about the Daisy I've been using to cull them though. That's getting their filthy little attention.
