Birds in Richmond Hill

Granted, Ontario does not have the rich variety of bird species seen in places like the Amazon rain forest, but the 501 species we do have here provides backyard and serious birdwatchers plenty of diversity. There are colourful songbirds, including several species of warblers, and regal raptors like the bald eagle. While a majority of the province’s bird populations migrate to warmer climates for the winter, 60 species brave the snow and frigid temperatures.

Watching birds flit about in the backyard is entertaining. Having them in your home is not the least bit amusing. At Skedaddle, we love birds, and we ensure their safe removal when they decide to set up residence inside your chimney, attic or vents. We take into consideration where our feathered friends are in their life cycle and use humane methods for removal. Once we have removed the unwelcome houseguests, we find and seal off entry points to prevent future intrusions.

Not all birds find Richmond Hill houses attractive locations for nesting. Sparrows, pigeons and starlings are the species that are most likely to make your home their own. They typically make their beds inside the chimney or exterior vents, but if they can make their way into the attic, they’re perfectly happy there as well. These birds can be noisy, and they are always messy. Their droppings also provide a means for disease transmission.

Birds do not carry rabies, but they do carry the pathogens that cause histoplasmosis, cryptococcosis and salmonellosis, among other illnesses. Birds can also do damage to your home. Their droppings are corrosive, and their nests become a fire hazard when they are located inside the chimney. They may also do damage to the insulation in your attic, which leads to higher energy bills. If you discover that birds have moved in, contact the professionals at Skedaddle Richmond Hill for safe and humane removal.

The hummingbird is the only bird that can fly in every direction, including backward.


Bald eagles were once on the brink of extinction, but the ban of DDT and intense conservation efforts have saved this majestic species.


The snowy owl is unusual for an owl species because it does its hunting in the light of day. It is born during the period of 24-hour Arctic sunlight and learns how to hunt during this time as well, which leads it to continue the practice once it has reached maturity.
