Nesting Sparrows Journal
Ive got some House Sparrows nesting in my yard, right next to my window. I know their just boring 'ol sparrows, but their still fasinating to study. Anyway, I plan on making a journal of sorts for their nest and such. I hope to be able to update it every other day or so.
If you have any questions or comments please ask!
I will get a photo as soon As I can.
I will keep this up to date as best I can.
April 1st-5th: Sparrows in and out, they seem to like it.
April 6th: Sparrows begin filling nest box with straw.
April 7-13th: Sparrow stuffing box with straw any hay. Constantly in the yard.
April 14th: Frequently in and out of nest box, almost always one bird inside at all times
April 15th: Lining of the nest! A number of feathers have been added to the now bowl shaped interior. Male and female always close by.
April 16th - 20th: More nest lining, though they seem to be not as active as they were when they were filling the nest box with straw.
April 21st: The sparrows have found a liking for plastic packaging, and have added a fair bit to the box.
April 22nd: Their plastic taste continues with the addition of a plastic bag. Its getting really cramped inside, though there is a nice bowl shape inside now.
April 23rd-26th: Finished lining, the sparrows seem to be spending their down time in a nearby tree, soaking up the sun.
