Birds in the York Region


Many bird species are found in York, including a variety of doves, starlings, sparrows and jays. These types of birds are usually quite adaptable, and in some cases, this can cause problems when they invite themselves to nest in and around your home. The resulting mess of feathers, droppings and ducking swooping territorial birds each time you leave your home can be frustrating, but we at Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control in York are standing by to help you evict your unwelcome winged guests.

When our wildlife technicians arrive at your home, they will likely assess the degree of the problem and how to proceed. Once the removal and cleanup is complete, our technicians can offer you protective measures so the birds cannot return.

Many birds in the York area tend to winter there, so you will likely see some species, such as sparrows and starlings, all year round. These birds typically eat a variety of food such as seeds, insects and commercial fill for bird feeders. During the winter, they are more likely to depend on humans for food, which is why they might nest in or around your home during this time. If they find that your home is free of predators or other dangers, they may raise their young there when spring comes. As the population increases, this can cause problems for you as the homeowner as noise and messes increase.
