Black Bird Removal & Control in Durham NC
Starlings - Black Birds - Sparrows in Durham NC
Starlings are very common in North Carolina, especially in the Triangle area. Some people will call this bird a "black bird," but it is oftentimes a Starling. Starlings are small birds and do look black while in flight, but they are actually not black.
Starlings or "black birds" will oftentimes choose to nest in buildings, like your barn or garage. They are also known to fly down into the exhaust vent on your roof that leads to a bathroom exhaust fan. This can cause real problems.
Typically if a small black bird or starling gets down an exhaust vent like this it will lay eggs, hatch babies and the babies will die. You will hear scratching sounds in the vent while the adult bird is building a nest - you should act immediately! Once the eggs are laid the future is a bad smell. Even if the bird decides not to lay eggs, the nesting material will clog your vents and also poses a fire hazard.
