Birds can become a nuisance at your home or business when they assemble on your roof or in trees on your property. These creatures play a vital role in Earth’s natural ecosystem. Birds help control insects, spread seeds of plants and trees, and can even pollinate some plants. Animal Remover tries to remove birds humanely and safely, no matter how many there are or how long they’ve been a nuisance. In today’s blog, the bird removal experts at Animal Remover showcase some amazing bird facts.
The Earth harbors around 10,000 species of birds all over the world, and they exist on every continent including Antarctica. The largest species of bird is an ostrich, a flightless bird native to Africa that can grow taller than humans. Ostriches lay the biggest eggs and run the fastest of any birds in the world. The smallest bird is the bee hummingbird at just 2 inches long. An individual bee hummingbird weighs less than a nickel. Animal Remover offers bird removal services for a wide range of bird species common in Ohio, such as pigeons, sparrows, and starlings.
A bird’s eyes take up around 50 percent of the space on its head. If that ratio were true for humans, our eyes would be the size of baseballs. Some birds, such as hawks, falcons, owls and eagles, need excellent eyesight for hunting as they fly. An ostrich’s eyes are actually bigger than its brain. Some species of ducks sleep with one eye open to protect the flock from predators. Bird removal experts can work to humanely relocate these beautiful creatures no matter how well they see.
Around 20 percent of birds migrate from season to season to find food. Arctic terns make the world’s longest migration. These tiny birds weigh 4 ounces, and they travel between Greenland and Antarctica every year along a zigzagging route. These birds fly 44,000 miles in a single year. Arctic terns live up to 30 years, which means they fly around 1.5 million miles over their lifetime. That distance equals three trips to the moon and back. Animal Remover can capture and release migratory species for bird removal so they can find their way back to their flock.
