Birds are fascinating creatures. After all, they figured out how to fly millions of years before we did. Their colors, songs, eating habits, migratory patterns, and fluid flight have enchanted so many humans that birdwatching has developed into a hobby in which millions partake. If you have an interest in birds and would like to be able to distinguish fact from fiction, take a look at these widely circulated bird myths.
Birdsong is a Sign of Happiness
There’s nothing like waking up to the beautiful sound of a bird’s morning song--if you’re ready to start your day, that is. While many people assume that birds sing when they are happy the way a contented laborer may whistle while he works, this is not the case. A bird’s song is far more likely to be a mating call or a boisterous attempt to defend his territory than it is a sign of peace and happiness.
Birds Prefer to Live in Nests
Nests are ideal for keeping eggs warm and caring for newborns, but they are not generally used as permanent homes. Most birds prefer to perch on tree branches or elsewhere.
You Can’t Pick and Choose with a Nest Box
Are you considering purchasing a nest box but wary of inviting pigeons and other avian pests to mate and lay eggs on your property? Even though it would be reasonable to assume that a next box could draw any bird that may fit in it for the duration of breeding season, this is not the case. Fairly small nest boxes, for instance, are more likely to draw hummingbirds and flycatchers than they are pigeons and crows.
Hummingbirds, quails, and Southwestern Willow Flycatchers are a joy to have singing and feeding on your property. Pigeons and crows, on the other hand, are about as desirable to most homeowners as expired milk. If the birds you don’t care for have taken a liking for your Phoenix area property, call Burns Bird Control at (602) 910-6834 to arrange to have an experienced bird control professional remove pesky birds and their droppings from your property.

The State of Arizona is home to several dozen endangered plant and animal species, including a handful of beautiful and non-invasive birds. To familiarize yourself with these avian species and their characteristics so that you don’t mistake them for pests should they grace your property with their presence, consult this introductory guide to Arizona birds.
The American Eagle is no longer an endangered species, but it is a symbol of our nation and a bird that many of us still get excited about seeing. Bald Eagles prefer to live near large bodies of water, build massive tree nests, and can be identified by the stark contrast between their white heads and brown plumage.
A relative of the Bald Eagle, the California Condor is classified as a critically endangered species. Unlike the Bald Eagle, the continent’s largest land bird actually has a primarily bald head. The bird holds mythical importance for many Native American tribes that have called the Southwest home. Conservation efforts have helped revive the numbers of this bird at such natural wonders as the Grand Canyon and Utah’s Zion National Park.
Indigenous to southern Arizona and northern Mexico, this endangered species is probably on the to-see list of just about every birdwatcher in Tucson. Males have a cinammon-colored breast and black head, whereas females are brown and white.
Southwestern Willow Flycatcher
This small bird, which can be found in a range of colors, is most easily identifiable by its song, which can soud quite similar to the brief blow of a whistle. It can be found throughout almost the entire State of Arizona, but Southwest Willow Flycatcher sightings are unfortunately not as common as they once were.
As endangered species that are native to America, the bird types discussed in this article are protected under federal law. If you spot one of them flying around near your Arizona property, consider yourself lucky and be sure not to tamper with them, their nests, or their eggs. If the only birds that seem attracted to your Phoenix property are pesky birds such as pigeons, call Burns Bird Control at (602) 910-6834 for safe, efficient, and humane bird removal and control services. Our experienced bird control professionals can use a combination of bird netting, screening, and spiking to deter avian pests from trying to make your property their own.

Nesting under roof eaves and leaving unsanitary droppings everywhere they fly or roost, birds can cause considerable damage to a home. As unsightly and inconvenient as some of this damage is, the damage you can see at least cannot creep up on you the way that damage your roof sustains can.
Bird droppings can damage structures made from virtually any type of building material, ranging from wood to stone to steel. A visual roof inspection is the most effective way to detect damage early on, but sagging and erosion will occur if acidic-enough droppings are left untreated for too long.
Are you a Phoenix area home or business owner who has experienced problems with pigeons or other pesky birds on your property this year? To arrange to have your roof inspected; bird droppings thoroughly removed; and your property screened, netted, or spiked to ward off future infestation, call Burns Bird Control in Phoenix at (602) 910-6834.
