Today I came home to see six young sparrows in the PMCA trap that is
incorporated into my 24"x24"36" decoy cage. I think the scape proofing
worked.

The most I have seen in the past is eight young sparrows.

I placed all six in a small decoy cage and sit it on top of the small Brad
Biddle trap I made a while back. I have never seen a sparrow in the since
I made them. Maybe this time with the sparrows are fledging their young,
the Brad Biddle traps will be tested.
