Ooh, run--don't walk!--and fix that bird house. No perch, outer block as
suggested by Mike Patterson, etc., all help. But if sparrows can't enter
the hole, they may still sit on top of a nest box, and attack the
chickadees coming or going. If they don't kill the chickadees, they will
certainly disrupt their nesting in that box. Don't wait to see the
aggressive behavior, Jeff.

Good landlording!
