Product Overview

Tomahawk Sparrow Live Trap with 2 Trap Doors - Model 501 will capture and hold upwards of twenty small birds at one time. The trick to making this trap effective is to place water and food in the area you plan on placing the trap for several days prior this trap. Remember when you set the live bird trap you should have a source of water in or very near the trap for the birds. Once the birds enter the trap, they cannot get out. 

This trap does not have actual doors that close but has wire at the end of a funnel entrance that can be bent to adjust the size if needed, not required.

    Birds are laughing

    By Hilary on 11/12/2015

    Haven't caught one bird. Very disappointed. I'll be throwing this cage on the junk metal pile.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
how do you remove the birds you want to be set free?

Some pest birds would be dispatched. Song birds etc would want to set free. How do you separate them?


Go into a shed or other enclosed area if needed and open the cage to manually remove the birds that are to be set free. Next, dispatch the other birds in cage as needed.

Which wires should I bend in more when using the Tomahawk Double Door Sparrow Trap - Model 501 to prevent small birds from escaping?

Caught 4 birds immediately, but they walked right out.


The Tomahawk Double Door Sparrow Bird Live Trap - Model 501 has tines at the end of each funnel that can be adjusted by bending them in to make the openings smaller. This should help prevent smaller birds from escaping from the trap.
