Egret Prevention
Posted Date: 1/9/2014 10:00 AM
Great EgretMany of you may be aware of the challenges we faced in 2011 with migratory birds nesting in residential areas of our community. These challenges were avoided in 2012 and 2013 by developing a strong partnership between City staff and the residents in affected neighborhoods. Nesting season is here and we are encouraging you to join this effort by taking the following steps: trim tree canopy to allow light to shine between limbs and other trees and remove old nesting material. If you identified migratory bird activity in your trees last year, begin thinking now about hanging visual deterrents such as owls, scare-eye balloons, reflective tape or other similar material in your tree. Report heron and egret activity to Animal Services immediately by calling 972-466-3420
