Bird Identification

Most nuisance birds live in flocks, an interdependent social order where each bird acts as the eyes and ears of the group.  Bird Gard harnesses the power of this intra-species communication system by using high fidelity digital recordings of the alarm and distress calls of more than 100 of the most common nuisance birds.

To be most effective, the exact species of the problem birds needs to be accurately identified.  Based on this identification, we will select the most effective combination of sounds and electronically record these sounds on a microchip in your Bird Gard unit.

This combination of sounds may include:

  • The distress and alarm calls of your particular problem birds
  • The sounds of their natural predator
  • Electronic harassment sounds that have been particularly effective at disorienting your problem birds

The appearance of many birds changes dramatically depending on the gender and age of the bird, as well as the time of year.  The best resource we have found for identifying birds is the website maintained by The Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

Cornell Lab or Ornithology is the best source for information on birds.We recommend visiting the Cornell site if you need assistance identifying your specific problem bird species.  Below are photos and links to the Cornell site for many of the most common pest birds.
