The birdbox that is close to Dona’s library box in the demonstration forest (at Santa Margarita School) is active with house sparrows’ nesting activity. The house sparrow was introduced from Europe in the mid- 1800s. You can find the house sparrow nesting in any sheltered cavity from birdhouses to streetlights. It eats seeds and insects and often seeks handouts such as bread crumbs.
