Bird lovers enjoy having all types of species in their yard, but not all birds are welcomed guests. Invasive species like House Sparrows and European Starlings are not native to the United States and can bully other species out of viable nesting spots and swarm bird feeders. With the two-compartment sparrow trap from Songbird Essentials, you can humanely control sparrow and starling populations in your yard.

All you have to do is place the trap in a prime location and set it. A trigger quickly closes the lid when birds are inside. Help give Purple Martins and Bluebirds freedom to nest on your property with this trap from Songbird Essentials.


•Figure 8-shaped trigger that quickly closes the lids

•Rust-proof construction

Works fine. We have removed many nesting sparrows from our backyard with the trap so they will no longer harass our purple martins and bluebirds.

Works great on sparrows trapped a least 15 in a month then the Squirrels and Rabbits discovered the Bait and keep tripping the doors. Other than that it does what its designed to do.

More Info

The manufacture suggest that if you see a sparrow nest to take part of it and put it in the center of the trap then dispose of the rest. This will call the sparrows to the cage.

Another option is to put pop corn to lure them. Once you get one then they will call for more.

The sparrow will sit on the perch and it triggers a mechanism to close the door. There is a one way entrance into the center cage.

Bird organizations will come pick up the sparrows if you call them.

Sparrow are know to be aggressive with other birds and animals.
