How to get rid of sparrows without harming or killing them? READ DESCRIPTION!!!

READ THIS:
Okay, so I have maybe 30 sparrow nests around my house in the gutters, drainage pipes, lights, statues, garage beams, and so many places. I haven't been able to count them all because they're EVERYWHERE! I need to get rid of most of them or all of them, but I will not harm or kill them.

Buy a couple fake owls
Or eagles and put them around your yard
And move them to a different place from time to time .

I've got fake snakes, fake prey birds stationed near nests, I even got my niece to get her owl puppet and scare them, but I think they've learned they're not real or something. I move them every time the parents are not at the nests, but its not working too well. Should I just wait until they're done nesting and try patching up the nest sites with wood so they can't nest anymore? I don't want to kick them out, but there are too many now. I can deal with two or three nests, but not this many.

Yes
After they nest , put a barrier up so they can not use the nest site anymore, or here's another thought,
Try some fox pee, you can buy it at
Dicks or most sporting good stores,
I know it works for rabbits , groundhogs , squirrels ,
Not sure about birds.
They also make a speaker that will play bird sounds for hunting,
Maybe this may work in your case also,..... And I think if they smelled the presence of an owl or eagle, they may want to leave also ."

Well, first thing would be to seal the locations that you can so they can't get in there. That includes inspecting the garage and sealing it up so there's nowhere to fly in there. You can get gutter guards that are meant to keep debris out, and those will block off gutters. There are also these spikey things you can put on surfaces so they can't roost. MAKE SURE all of the nests are empty before blocking off an area.

Hang up mirrors or holographic tape in the rafters, on the lights, or in the trees. The bright flashes of light, and crackling noise of the tape, will scare them off.

Wow, I wonder why sparrows live there?
Report as
Because people chop down trees. Why do birds move to houses like mine in the first place?
Report as
idk
Report as
Because they've no safer place to be. Predators like foxes, wild cats, bears, etc stay away from humans.
Report as
oh! true, true...They feel safe in your home :)
Report as
That they do. But as much as I'd like to keep them safe, they're tearing my house up and it stinks. Most of them have gotta go.
Report as
wow, that must be awful, ugh! does it stink in your room?
Report as
No, they're not inside the house, just everywhere around it. It's like the sparrows are taking over a country or something.
