Bird Control In Calgary With Tried-and-tested Techniques
If you suspect you have a bird infestation, it’s important that you seek professional bird control in Calgary immediately. When birds create nests and lay their eggs on your property, it can be very difficult to enjoy your space. Birds can get nasty and overprotective if you or your guests get too close to their nests. Additionally, they drop feces all over your property and spread dangerous parasites and disease to you and your pets.

Common Birds In Calgary
Size: 40 to 53 cm long, wingspan of 85 to 100 cm.
Colour: All black including their legs and bill. American crow feathers appear brownish when crow molting occurs.
Behaviour: A highly social bird species, American crows flock by the thousand. Viewed mischievously in common folklore, this isn’t unfounded with these intelligent birds more than adept at infiltrating garbage bins and foraging farms for discarded food. Forming close family units, American crows can be aggressive when aggravated or disturbed. Therefore, you should choose Terminix Canada for American crow control.
Size: 14 to 18 cm long, wingspan of 19 to 25 cm.
Colour: Brown to grey colour variations in their feathers.
Behaviour: House sparrows only eat insects when their babies are young. During the rest of their lifespan, they enjoy a diet that includes grain crops, grain and other seeds. They often begin breeding in March and may continue until August. A pair raise up to four broods every year, having as many as six eggs at a time.
Size: Adults are 45 to 60 cm long, wingspan of approximately 60 cm.
Colour: Black and white with blue-green hints on the wings and tail.
Behaviour: Constructing large and messy stick nests, black-billed magpies breed in spring and produce between 5 and 8 eggs a year. Often discovered in Calgary city gardens preying on other birds or foraging for food, this carnivorous bird species’ natural habitat is within clumps of trees in pastureland. If you need safe and humane magpie control or magpie removal, Terminix Canada is highly experienced in deterring magpies.
Size: 29 to 37 cm long, wingspan of 62 to 72 cm.
Colour: Grey-blue feathers with iridescent throat plumage. Yellow, greenish and reddish-purple markings along their wings and neck, usually with a dark tipped tail.
Behaviour: Pigeons’ heads often move rhythmically and sway forward and backwards as they walk or stand. They are monogamous birds who mate for life. Their only defence mechanism against predators is flying, and despite having many predators, their population isn’t in any danger.
Size: 19 to 23 cm long, wingspan of 31 to 44 cm.
Colour: Black, glossy feathers with a metallic/iridescent sheen.
Behaviour: Starlings form communal roosts which may end up being home to 10,000 more birds. During their migration, the flock populations can grow into hundreds of thousands in Southern Ontario and some other provinces. They nest in tall trees or buildings and enjoy feeding on wild or cultivated fruits like berries or cherries.
Size: Differs by species. Downy woodpeckers are 14 to 17 cm long with a wingspan of 25 to 30 cm. The northern flicker woodpecker is approximately 11 to 14 cm long with a wingspan of 42 to 54 cm.
Colour: Differs by species. The downy woodpecker is black and white patterned. Males have a small red patch on the back of their head. Northern flicker woodpeckers in Calgary have a mostly brownish body with dark patterned spots and red underneath their wing and tail feathers.
Behaviour: Rising and falling, the agile downy woodpecker rushes between tree limbs and tall weeds to search for food, whining loudly in spring and summer. Elsewhere, northern flicker woodpeckers are more ground-based but when they do frequent trees, they perch themselves upright. Calgary is also home to the hairy woodpecker, the yellow-bellied sapsucker, and the pileated woodpecker. Our woodpecker control and woodpecker removal gets results.
