ABOUT US

Although all birds have the potential to cause damage, the vast majority aren’t problematic.

It is only a few pest species, most notably pigeons, that are the cause of the issues that home and business owners face.

Large bird populations can be noisy, as well as generate a significant amount of mess and debris. Their nests can block anything from drain pipes through to gutters, chimneys and more. The result? A huge headache and an even bigger inconvenience to you.

Left unchecked, pest birds not only have the potential to spread some unpleasant bird diseases, they can also have a negative effect on local ecosystems – presenting a threat to other indigenous Australian birds.

More than a threat to native fauna, bird droppings can also cause health issues to you and your family. With droppings also damaging buildings and leading to structural problems, it’s clear that a lasting bird control solution in Sydney is needed.

For all these reasons and more, if you’re suffering from unwanted birds, our bird removal and bird proofing services can bring about the lasting results you’ve been looking for.

Dealing with bird problems? Each bird has its own habits and normally solutions for nest and bird removal or bird proofing need to be tailored to suit the particular characteristics of each species.

Use our handy guide to identify the culprit.

Pigeons

What am I?

The most common, and possibly the most destructive Australian bird pest, pigeons are widespread, particularly in urban areas.

They typically nest in buildings, drainpipes, gutters and other man made structures. Pigeons are experts at finding inaccessible spots where they are unlikely to be disturbed. Their ancestors made homes in cliffs, which is probably the reason why they tend to nest in high places, raining twigs and other nest debris down onto people in the street below.

Because of their tendency to live in close proximity to humans, they frequently cause problems with their nesting habits.

What do I look like?

Pigeons are grey birds that have a black bill and white nose. Their eyes are orange and their wings are usually a paler shade of grey in comparison with their bodies. If you live in Sydney, you already know what this ever present bird looks like.

What habits do I have?

Pigeons eat a wide variety of foods, including grain, vegetables, fruit, insects and grit. They are sociable birds and tend to congregate together with large numbers typically settling in one place and flying together in large flocks.

Pigeons are creatures of habit and will often return to the same place to eat or nest.

Unfortunately their droppings also harbour some particularly unpleasant diseases, including encephalitis, aspergillosis and pigeon ornithosis. Pigeon droppings can cause a considerable amount of damage to buildings, as well as being hazardous underfoot.

Sparrows

What am I?

Although individual sparrows may look adorable, in large flocks they can cause a significant amount of mess and damage. Sparrows are small birds (around 16 or 17 cm long) and often make their home in the backyards and gardens throughout Sydney.

What do I look like?

Female sparrows are brown, whereas males have a reddish tint to their feathers and two white bars on their wings.

Both males and females have stumpy, short bills as well as short legs and wings. They eat a wide variety of foodstuffs, including insects, fruit, vegetable scraps and seeds.

What habits do I have?

Sparrows tend to congregate together in large flocks and almost always construct their nests in man-made structures, including houses, sheds or similar. Their droppings can cause considerable misery to inhabitants, as well as carry the risk of spreading disease.

In some cases sparrows will build their nests near power lines or other utility installations, causing damage and supply disruption.

Because they are not indigenous, sparrows may drive smaller, indigenous birds out of a particular area that they've colonised, potentially disrupting the local wildlife.

Indian Mynas

What am I?

As the name suggests, Indian Mynas are not indigenous birds. Both male and female Mynas grow to around 24cm from beak to tail tip and were introduced from India over a century ago. Through competition for food, nesting sites and territories, Indian Mynas have become a highly disruptive species throughout Sydney suburbs.

What do I look like?

Indian Mynas have a golden brown top, with lighter brown beneath. Both males and females have a darker brown head and neck, which may appear greenish in some lights. Their legs, beak and eyes are all yellow. A distinctive feature of the Myna is the large bald spot they have behind their eyes. This makes them almost instantly recognisable.

What habits do I have?

Unlike pigeons, Mynas tend not to nest in high places and aren’t prone to nesting in man-made structures.

They usually build large, untidy nests made of grass and twigs in relatively low-lying vegetation.

Because of their tendency to avoid buildings and to nest at a lower level, they are not guilty of the damage which pigeons tend to cause to buildings. Their droppings though can still be problematic.

Their tendency to live close to humans means that they are a particularly obvious target when it comes to eliminating bird mess or debris from a particular area. Mynas normally wander about in pairs or small groups.

They feed at a low level, consuming seeds, insects and bits of fruit. At night they will tend to flock together, nesting in a small area for mutual protection. These nesting sites can often suffer from a significant volume of bird droppings.

Starlings

What am I?

Starlings are a pest bird species not indigenous to Australia. Originally from England, they were introduced to Australia in the 1860s. Because they aren’t native to Australia, they will compete with indigenous birds for food and territory, potentially having a damaging effect on native wildlife too.

What do I look like?

Starlings are little black coloured birds who have amazingly iridescent feathers. They measure around 20 cm long when fully grown and have dull brown beaks which change colour to a vibrant yellow during the breeding season.

What habits do I have?

Starlings are vociferous insect eaters and can be beneficial in reducing the number of unwanted pests in crop-growing areas.

Unfortunately they also have a number of less pleasant characteristics, and with Sydney lacking the crops they would otherwise call home, they are considered to be pests in the urban environment.

Starlings have a tendency to flock together in large numbers, producing large amounts of bird droppings in a relatively small area. The droppings are acidic and can cause damage to buildings and pavements, as well as present an unwanted trip or slip hazard.

Their droppings can also contain toxic bacteria, with starling droppings having been associated with the spread of the particularly unpleasant histoplasmosis. Starlings can also be extremely noisy. When hundreds flock together, the noise can be extremely intrusive and unpleasant.

Plovers

What am I?

A native Australian bird, the plover is naturally drawn to wetland and marsh environments, but has found a place in Sydney’s landscape as a highly adaptable bird.

Relatively small, this shore bird is compact but elegantly tapered and as a migratory bird may appear in backyards from Mascot to Marrickville, Balmain to Bondi.

What do I look like?

Plovers, also known as Masked Lapwings, are fairly large birds. With long reddish legs, a black crown and large yellow facial wattles, they are easily identified. Plovers also have a thorny spur that projects from the wrist on each wing. With their preferred habitat on the shores of swamps and lakes you may recognise this species if you live near a body of water.

What habits do I have?

Plovers typically flock together in winter before dispersing. If there is no present threat or predator, plovers will return to the same nesting spot year after year, making bird removal important.

These birds feed on insects and their larvae with the majority of food taken from just below the surface of the ground.

Plovers are highly territorial and should not be approached for removal or relocation without professional help. Like magpies, plovers have been known to swoop when defending their young.

Seagulls

What am I?

Seagulls are naturally seabirds, but can often come inland in search of easy food.

Their natural diet is fish, but inland they will eat scraps, insects, fruit, vegetables and abandoned human food. Contrary to what you may have seen, they do eat food other than leftover hot chips on a picnic table.

Operating in large flocks, seagulls can be quite aggressive predators with some known to snatch food from unsuspecting humans.

What do I look like?

Seagulls have white breasts and heads with greyish wings and a white beak which has a distinctive red spot beneath it. Their young's first feathers are a flecked brown colour, which give way to the more familiar grey colour as the bird matures.

What habits do I have?

Seagulls are quite happy to root through bins in their search for food. This not only causes mess, it can also attract vermin and other pests. They can also be aggressive, particularly in large numbers.

One of the major issues with seagulls is the damage they cause when they flock around a potential food source. When they find food, large numbers will descend to take advantage of it.

This not only creates a high volume of droppings, but seagulls can also damage property in their dash for food.
