What do sparrows eat
For the most part sparrows are seed eaters. The seeds that the sparrow will normally prefer are millet, grass, thistle, weed, and sunflower seed. Even though the sparrow is primarily a seed eater they will eat small insects, and are often seen in parking lots and parks where scraps of food are left about. During the breading season the common House Sparrow will prefer insects and worms. During this time a mealworm feeder will attract sparrows to your backyard.
