Bird Removal: What to Do When a Bird Gets into Your Home

  • Remember That Up is Out. While you wait for our team to arrive to provide professional bird removal services, you should also take steps to encourage the bird to make its way out on its own. One key thing to keep in mind in order to do so successfully is that, to birds, “up is out.” In other words, a bird will generally look for a way out in an upward direction, which means that it may take a while to fly out of a low window than a high one. However, opening a window and leaving the room is often the best course of action, as this gives the bird time and space to find the exit without becoming frightened by humans.
  • Close Interior Doors. Another step that our bird removal experts recommend that you take is to close any interior doors to prevent the bird from moving deeper into the house. With interior doors blocked off and exterior windows open, the bird should be able to figure out how to get back outside eventually.
  • Remove Dangers. Lastly, while you wait for our bird removal team to arrive, you should also try to remove anything that could endanger the bird from the area. Turn off any fans so that the bird does not fly into the blades and get hurt, and make sure that any dogs or cats stay well away from the room that the bird is in.
