As spring kicks into full swing, we inevitably see more and more birds around our homes and neighborhoods. For many of us, hearing the birds chirping is a sign of warmer weather. Wild birds can also become a nuisance in your yard and even your home. During the spring, it’s essential to keep your eyes open for potential bird nests that could cause problems in the future and lead to bird removal. In today’s blog post, Animal Remover discusses how to identify a bird’s nest.

Where Should You Look?
Bird nests don’t always look the way we think they should. Many bird nests won’t look like nests at all, so it’s important to know where to look and what to look for. Trees are the most common location of bird nests, so those are always a good place to start. Look in the interior of the tree and keep an eye out for anything that looks out of the ordinary. Beyond trees, birds create nests on the ground, in shrubberies, and even gutters. Many birds love to use gutters for their nests, especially if they haven’t been cleared of debris. Nests are one reason why you must keep your gutters clear of leaves and brush when trying to prevent a bird removal situation.
What Are You Looking For?
The look of bird nests varies between species and location. Typically, bird nests contain sticks, brush, and even leaves at times. The composition of bird nests varies depending on what is available and what species live in the nest. The size of the nest is a good indicator of what types of birds live here. If you have a bigger nest, you probably have a bigger bird or a bird that has a larger brood of eggs. While there is some difference between nesting materials, most birds will use some variation of grass, twigs, sticks, and even pebbles to create their nests.
What Is Your Response?
Your response will entirely depend on the severity of the problem. If you locate one small nest in a tree in your backyard, you probably don’t need any bird removal help. However, if you have found several bigger nests and believe you might be looking at an infestation of birds or the presence of several large birds, bird removal might be necessary.
