(NM) EGRETS AND NIGHT HERONS ARE BACK IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD This is an absolute critical time period is between the first birds being spotted in the area and the first egg being laid in a nest. This crunch time when you have the only opportunity to scare the birds away and to disrupt the problem. Any home with mature trees is a potential nesting site for these birds. If you have not yet taken action to prevent nesting on your property, please do so now! Prevention is Crucial - Because egrets, herons and other migratory birds are protected by international treaty, it’s illegal for residents to harass or harm the birds once they lay eggs. Preventing birds from building nests on residential property in the first place is key. When the birds first arrive in spring, they are somewhat nervous and more easily scared away. Putting visual deterrents in trees is recommended before nest building begins. You can also scare off birds with noisemakers, water sprayers and other non-lethal devices. Neighbors are advised to check their trees daily and remove the start of any nest. Once birds begin sitting on the nest, eggs are probably present and birds cannot be harassed. Egret Prevention Tools - This is a list of possible tools and tactics you can use to deter migratory birds from nesting on your property. Experts say a variety of deterrents works best. Just remember-do not harm birds or eggs. • Trim your trees - Remove deadwood. Thin tree canopy to allow sunlight between limbs and other trees. Experts say this is the most effective step you can take. • Visual deterrents - Hang aluminum pie plates, Mylar balloons, beach balls with shiny streamers or other moving objects in large trees. • Noisemakers - Pump-style air horns, whistles, clappers and even children’s toys are effective. Make as much noise as possible aimed at the bird. • Bright lights - High-intensity flashlights, strobe lights, flashing holiday lights can be effective. • Water sprayers - Power sprayers and pump-style toy water shooters can help. Homemade PVC pipe sprayers can help reach tall tree limbs. • Pool poles - Telescoping pool safety poles can be used to reach and remove early nesting material.
