What kills sparrows?

I've just found a dead mature sparrow in my garden. It doesn't look like a cat was responsible.

Do they get poisoned by anything? I know that the young die if there isn't sufficient live food.

In London. Keen but lazy.

    We get bees whacking our south facing window.  There was another dead male in our front garden a couple of years ago. I've left it he sparrow in situ. Something will dispose of it tonight.

    I agree with pansyface. Everything dies
