Would you put the bird brick in your house wall?

Seems like a clever idea, especially for newer houses which don't have "nooks and cranys" for nesting birds...

The Bird Brick can be installed in collections of two to three in order to accommodate species like the house sparrow, and can be easily cleaned out once every two to five years some time between September to November.

Well, I certainly would not encourage house sparrows here in the western U.S, but I'd do it for chickadees, nuthatches, etc.

I think this is a great idea. House Sparrow numbers have significantly reduced in the UK inrecent years. But it could also be applied/used for other species with limited nesting sites.

All the house sparrows have moved to the U.S. Our real immigration problem.

I wouldn't put a bird brick in my house wall for a sparrow.

Must be a problem everywhere except the UK. They are in plague proportions in my backyard. I blame the neighbours for getting chooks and leaving seed & food scraps out.

Love the idea, but not sure I'd this in a wall to the actual house. Maybe if there is a boundary wall between properties. But then in the UK most urban fences are of wood.
