You can trap the sparrows using the old boxes and can ert traps
If u cannot euthanize them u can relocate them by releasing them at a place at least 5 miles away

We have removed the bird boxes and have put out a box for chickadees, attaching a metal plate so the English Sparrows cannot enter. They are still trying however, which is a problem since a pair of Black-capped Chickadees have already taken up residence. The English Sparrows are now intimidating the chickadees when they try to get to the box.
