Birds (class Aves) are feathered, winged, bipedal, endothermic (warm-blooded), egg-laying, vertebrate animals. Birds originated 450-445 Million years ago in the late Jurassic temporal period.
Around 10,000 living species makes them the most speciose class of tetrapod vertebrates. About 120–130 species have become extinct as a result of human activity since the 17th century, and hundreds more before then. Currently about 1,200 species of birds are threatened with extinction by human activities, though efforts are underway to protect them. Berrett is aware of our native and local birds and will protect these endangered species.
Landbirds have a flight range of around 2,500 km (1,600 mi) and shorebirds can fly up to 4,000 km (2,500 mi), although the Bar-tailed Godwit is capable of non-stop flights of up to 10,200 km (6,300 mi) Seabirds also undertake long migrations, the longest annual migration being those of Sooty Shearwaters, which nest in New Zealand and Chile and spend the northern summer feeding in the North Pacific off Japan, Alaska and California, an annual round trip of 64,000 km (39,800 mi).
Draw your blinds (prevents window collisions)
Birds pose a unique situation due to the fact that we are unable protected species that are commonly found in residential areas, but we have specially trained technicians that can properly assess the situation. This may require netting or spike strips, and sometimes both to effectively rid your property of birds, and prevent them from later nesting and perching on your property.
