Bird Control Tips

The best long-term success for bird control (pigeon control, sparrow control, etc) will be to make changes that make it impossible for these and other birds to be able to use our structures as their roosts and nesting spots. This will cost a lot more in the beginning, but the physical devices such as bird slide, bird flite and bird netting you install will last for many years, and closing off access points with copper stuff-it can permanently exclude them from other areas of buildings. If all we do is scare them away they will return, or if not them, then other flocks that also see the structure will view it as a fine place to be.

Beyond these things there are the other options of placing wire or plastic pronged strips along ledges, wire cables running the length of ledges, the bouncing wires of the Daddi Long Legs Bird Control Wires, etc. These materials can make it physically impossible for pigeons to get onto the ledges they need, and they will go somewhere else….perhaps to another potential.

Immediate relief, from a flock of pigeons or gulls for example, utilizes the role of frightening devices. Frightening devices like flickering Flash Tape, roving Scare Eyes, fake raptors, bright lights, and Bird-Gard noises will all disrupt the comfort level of pigeons, but commonly get ignored after a little while. The birds begin to realize that nothing really is happening to them from these strange devices.

If the birds are actually NESTING on the structure they are going to be pretty passionate about getting back to their nest sites, and experience shows that they may try to ignore the pain of the physical things you put in their way. Some of the best Bird Control folks around will tell you that you may end up having to kill a few of the birds most desperate to stay where you don’t want them. If all the structure is used for is “loafing”, then just making it inconvenient will be effective. Even the use of sticky materials like 4-the-Birds will be enough of a surprise to the landing bird, when the glue pulls at its feet, to cause it to look for a more comfortable place. Glues have their drawbacks though, so use them wisely.

And always remember, ultrasonic pest repellers and related pest control products are sold widely to chase various kinds of “vermin” away, including anything from fleas to rats to snakes to birds. A legitimate university study has yet to show that these devices are actually effective, so it would be better not to waste money on them. Placing netting, wires, strips, or other physical barriers is the best control so you don’t continually fight the problem, and short term removal can be accomplished with frightening devices.

Bird Photography Tips

A few people have emailed me asking for some bird photography tips and tricks of the trade. After some thought on the subject, I have come up with the following 10 tips for photographing birds.

Practice with the Locals. The best way to become familiar with photographing birds in your own backyard. What birds can you photograph at home? Do you have a birdfeeder or birdbath set up in your yard to draw birds in? Use these local birds to see behaviors such as how close you can get before they spook, and whether they eat at the feeder or take the food to somewhere nearby to enjoy it. Start by photographing birds in your yard to get used to their movements and feeding habits.

Timing is everything. Most species of birds eat in the morning or late afternoon. Get to know the habits of the bird that you are photographing and where it returns every day to feed.

Walk softly. Learn how to approach birds quietly and with very little movement. This goes for all wildlife photography.

Be respectful of nature. When photographing a bird, or photographing any wildlife, never corner the animal. Be mindful that the bird has a way of escape if it gets scared. This helps to ensure that the bird does not begin to fear all humans because of one disrespectful one.

Be wary of the weather. If the weather is threatening, the birds will tuck themselves where they will be safe from the weather. It may be best to just try another day.

Know what you want. Study bird photographs. Most bird photographs were the result of countless hours of waiting, and perhaps returning for several days to the same location that the bird frequents. If the image that you seek is of an Osprey catching a fish, the odds are very small that you will just happen upon that opportunity and get it, especially with the perfect light and background.

Do not chase. It sometimes is hard to finally see the bird that you want to photograph and not chase it around wildly. Be conscious of your movements and the signals that you giving to the animal. If you act frantic, don’t you think that the bird will too?

Behaviors make the best bird photographs. Photograph birds doing natural movements such as pruning, bathing, or feeding make for much more interesting photographs than a bird sitting on a wall.

Prepare in advance. When you know where you are going, and when the bird will be there, it is easy to get a chair and tripod set up so that you are ready to photograph the bird when it arrives. Do your homework.

Be patient! I always have to reiterate this with new wildlife photographers. The bird is not going to arrive and ask for its photo to be taken! It is a blessing when the opportunity for a great photograph happens. Appreciate it!
