When you enter Reifel, as you wonder on down the path you are sure to see these little guys (and girls). They’re busy foraging on the ground, picking up seeds that the ducks may have missed.

FACT: “House Sparrows aggressively defend their nest holes. A scientist in 1889 reported cases of House Sparrows attacking 70 different bird species. House Sparrows sometimes evict other birds from nest holes, including Eastern Bluebirds, Purple Martins, and Tree Swallows.” ~ allaboutbirds.org
