I Need help!!

I have never seen this before. I have a flock of sparrows about 15 that are monopolizing my feeders. They keep all other birds at bay and eat all the seed, suet, thistle, and won't let the hummers come to feed. Is there anything I can do to stop this? I have stopped filling my feeders. Your help is most appreciated.

Unfortunately there isn't a lot you can do. You have pulled the feed and might keep things up for two weeks or so and hopefully they will leave. Fox sparrows are quite aggressive.

I don't understand how they are keeping the hummingbirds from feeding though? Hang the hummer feeders in a different location far from where you had the other feeders, the sparrows shouldn't be interested in them.
