You can’t go wrong with the repeating sparrow trap from sparrowtraps.net. I use this with great success. Put it on the ground and use millet. Put a little of the millet around the entrance and you WILL catch them. I had 9 males in Feb in one day. Then I simply issue them a blindfold, a cigarette and execute them at dawn.
Be SURE to check on a regular basis to release birds other than HOSP’s (I have even had BLJA’s in there – twice!!). It is the most effective way to capture the little buggers. :TwoHosp:
