If by nuisance and damage you mean stealing the nesting sites of native birds, yes.

Very nice shots!
Those birds are not native to your country?

Those are great shots! Very nice detail! I might consider looking for one of these. It would replace 2 of my lenses!

No. The Starling and House Sparrow were both introduced. The Starling around 1890, the House Sparrow in 1851. They will evict Eastern Bluebirds, Tree Swallows, and Purple Martins from their nest holes. Those happen to be some of my favorite birds...
