Birds in Barrie

 

Birds are one of the most diverse creatures on the planet. There are an estimated 18,000 species that exhibit a wide variety of colours and behaviours. While we think of flying as a characteristic that defines birds, not all birds are capable of flight. Approximately 60 living species have lost their ability to fly somewhere along the way. Birds can be seen in every ecosystem, and they provide countless hours of entertainment for bird lovers.

Backyard birdwatching is a common pastime, but when birds move from the yard into your house, they become a nuisance. At Skedaddle, we make sure that your unwanted houseguests are relegated once again to the outdoors. It is important to ensure the animals’ safety, so we take additional precautions when there are eggs or babies in a nest. Once we’ve completed our humane removal procedures, we seal off any potential bird entry points to prevent future incidents.

Ontario is home to 501 bird species, 291 of which choose our province to breed. Despite our harsh winters, 60 species brave the cold weather. Sparrows, pigeons and some starlings are among those that can be seen year-round in Barrie. These birds are common, and they are the ones that are most likely to move into your home. They seek out the protection attics and vents provide, and, in the winter, the warmth of a used chimney is too good to pass up.

A single bird roosting in a vent may go unnoticed, but multiple birds create a lot of noise and big messes. If they build a nest in your chimney, it creates a fire hazard. Their nests can also block dryer vents and clog the gutters. Birds carry numerous diseases, most of which are transmitted to people and pets through their droppings. If you discover that you have resident birds in your home, it is important to contact the professionals who know how to safely and humanely remove them.
