Yes, in southeast Aurora, over the years, we have definitely noticed fewer house sparrows. For several years house finches have dominated with lots of other interesting species occurring , more nuthatches, more goldfinches, occasional bushtits, solitaires and this year even red crossbills.

Denver Audubon just received a call from a woman in Lafayette with a unique subject: where have the House Sparrows gone?
She says she used to have as many as 80, but now she sees only a pair or two, sproadically. They check out her yard and continue on somewhere else. Have any of you experienced a diminishing numbers of House Sparrows?
