Birds in Newmarket

Birds are a common sight in just about every location in the world, though tropical environments boast significantly more species than hot or cold desert ecosystems. There are an estimated 18,000 species currently in existence. With numbers this high, it is difficult to get an exact count! Some birds spend most of their lives on the water, while others spend more days in flight than at a standstill. They have adapted to living in trees, on the ground and in human-made structures.

Having birds in your home is not pleasant. They can be noisy, messy and destructive. It takes trained professionals to remove them. At Skedaddle, we understand bird behaviour and biology. Our removal process is safe and humane. We consider bird life cycles and take steps to ensure the wellbeing of their babies. Once the process is complete, we take measures to prevent any more bird issues in your home.

People in Newmarket can see anywhere from 60 to 501 bird species travelling around the Ontario province. This wide swing indicates the difference between the number of bird species that stick around all year and those that head for warmer weather. Three species commonly make their nests in our homes: starlings, sparrows and pigeons. Though most of the starlings migrate south, some of them stay in our area year-round. Pigeons and sparrows don’t head south for the winter.

At any time during the year, you might discover that one of these types of birds has decided to build a nest in your home. Favourite nesting locations include attics, chimneys and exterior vent openings. Droppings can contain viruses that cause illnesses in people and their pets. Birds can also cause structural damage. If you find birds using your home as their own, it is important to contact Skedaddle in Newmarket for the humane removal of our fine feathered friends.
