What Is A Pest Bird?

The main culprit when it comes to pest birds in NYC is the feral pigeon. The feral pigeon is actually not native to the United States. They are descendants of domesticated pigeons that were released into the wild. They can now be found in every major city throughout the country and in many other parts of the world.

Things You Should Know: Common pest birds in NY and CT include pigeons, starlings, and sparrows.  Pest birds carry many diseases that can pose a threat to human health.  Pest bird droppings can cause slips and falls, accelerate the aging of buildings, and damage equipment.

  • Common pest birds in NY and CT include pigeons, starlings, and sparrows.
  • Pest birds carry many diseases that can pose a threat to human health.
  • Pest bird droppings can cause slips and falls, accelerate the aging of buildings, and damage equipment.

Why Do I Have Them?

Pigeons, along with other pest birds such as house sparrows and starlings, are attracted by food and shelter. They prefer roosts of which they can hide underneath, such as the letters of large signs. However, their number one priority is the accessibility of food. If you have bird feeders set out, this is most likely what is attracting your pigeons.

Are Birds Dangerous?

Pigeons are filthy birds that leave an area covered in droppings. Bird droppings spread many different diseases including Salmonella, West Nile Virus, Avian Flu, and many more. They may also introduce other pests that live on birds such as lice, mites, fleas, and ticks.
