Bird Biology

Birds are warm-blooded vertebrates that are classified by their feathers and toothless, beaked jaws. There are a variety of bird species that can be found all over the world, ranging in size from tiny little hummingbirds that aren’t more than 2 inches big, to larger species such as ostriches, which can be 9 ft tall. There are more than 10,000 different bird species and not all of them can fly.

Did You Know?

Birds are a group of feathered theropod dinosaurs and therefore are considered the only living dinosaurs.

Bird Behaviour, Diet, Habitat and Life Cycle

Most birds can be separated into two types – birds like ducks, geese and other waterfowl or shore birds are known as precocial and they are mobile immediately after birth. They’re born with their eyes open and will normally leave the nest within mere days to find water and food with the help of their mother. They still rely on their mom to teach them about food and survival, but they are quite independent after birth.

The other type of birds that develop differently are song birds (robins, finches, chickadees, and more) and corvids (blue jays, crows, magpies, and more). These birds are born naked with their eyes closed and are completely reliant on their parents for the first stage of their life. These are the birds you’ll find in nests.

All birds lay eggs, but some will only lay one at a time and some will lay multiple. Many birds live for an average of two to five years, but that’s not the oldest they can live. For instance, the average age of a blue tit is only 2.7 years, but the oldest blue tit to ever be recorded was more than 21-years-old!

Wondering How To Get Rid Of Birds?

While birds are beautiful to admire from afar, they impose risks and threats to you when that distance closes. Birds cause damage to your home in a variety of ways. These include droppings, shed feathers, diseases, and parasites. Therefore, birds need to be removed from your home or business or immediately.
