It's a controversial practice and some say it's barbaric.
Now a French group for the protection of birds has said that the hunting of birds by glue-trapping hurts the country's biodiversity.
They add that the practise could resume if its temporary suspension were to be revoked next year.
France has suspended the glue-trapping of songbirds this year but stopped short of abolishing the practice, which is banned under European Union regulations.

He says the traps also catch many protected species.
"These are non-selective techniques since they catch all types of birds, we can't say it's selective, and the techniques are also deadly for a wide number of species."
President Emmanuel Macron said in a statement last week that the quota for hunting thrushes and blackbirds with glue traps will be set to zero this year.
France is the only country to still allow the catching of birds with glue traps despite a 1979 European Union ban.
France has allowed the practice every year under a 1989 decree as long as it's controlled and done in a limited quantity.
Willy Schraen, the president of the National Hunting Federation, says glue-trapping is an historic tradition.
"It's extremely regulated, we can only do it from sunrise to 11am, we have to stay close. Why does it bother Europe, which I think has other preoccupations than bothering French people in rural areas?"
An Elysee palace statement said France was awaiting a response from the European Court of Justice about legal issues involving glue trapping.
