True if you qualify the statement with the word "regularly" or "usually."

Eurasian Tree Sparrows have been found as far west as Boone County (Columbia is the county seat) on a few occasions.  They were confirmed nesting at Hallsville (north Boone Co.), but were there for one season/year only.  One came repeatedly to a feeder in Columbia several years ago; another was at Bradford Farm east of Columbia a couple of years ago; and several were on a farm along the road to Tri-City Lake in the northern part of the county for one year.

They may appear in a variety of places around the state, but go unrecognized, and fail to establish a sustainable breeding population.
