I don’t know about the woman in Lafayette, But the lack of house sparrows I reported in southeast Aurora is an observation covering the entire year. Jean Stevenson

The answer is that they have dispersed from their winter flocks for breeding. This is an annual phenomenon.

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?
