What species are these House Sparrows displacing, i.e., would be
nesting under Kelly's eaves and finding waste seeds or french fries
to eat if House Sparrows hadn't moved into the neighborhood? If they
are claim jumpers then there's maybe reason to be indignant, but
where's the evidence? Hey, didn't they just come out here with the
railroads, like most of us?
