Invasive, non-native House Sparrows take food and nest sites from native birds, driving away nesting bluebirds, wood swallows, etc. Many bird lovers just want to get rid of house sparrows from their feeders altogether.
The Magic Halo is a wire hoop device that attaches easily to the top of a bird feeder. It selectively repels greedy house sparrows while leaving native species untroubled.
How does it work? Research has shown that native bird species generally approach feeders from the bottom, while pesty house sparrows approach from above. Studies of this device have shown that pest HOSP (house sparrows) do not like to fly under this device, which gives more opportunity to desirable songbirds.
