Many of New Hampshire's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving New Hampshire's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Rockingham county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Derry animal control for wildlife issues.

Derry Wildlife Removal Tip: HOW DO PIGEONS COMMUNICATE?

Communication is an indispensable part of our lives. It can fill all blanks to make a meaningful sentence. As a human, it is always interesting to know if birds communicate with each other? Does their sound of coo etc make sense to anyone? This post is to talk about how pigeons communicate! Pigeons were the messengers during 18th century. They used to carry message across borders and were one of the only modes of communication. That said, times have changed, and technology has eased out the ways of communication! Pigeons just communicate for themselves in their own unique manner.

It is believed that pigeons communicate to each other in different manner to convey different emotions/messages. Here is an insight on how pigeons communicate. Their behaviour, sound and movement are the primary means of communication and here are few identified versions of those!

1. High-pitched sound: Pigeons generally produce a high-pitched sound if they want to call each other to convey some message. If they want to share food or communicate about location of source of food or water or if they need a courtship, then they just call out in loud voice. You would have seen how group of pigeon accumulates in no time by hearing this loud noise! High-pitched sound is basically to convey something urgent and time sensitive.
2. Bowling: You might have seen pigeon lowering his head and going around and round making a cooing sound continuously. This communication method is generally used by male pigeons to attract female pigeons. If a pigeon is doing it, that means he has seen a female pigeon nearby and is attracting her to mate. This is their mode of conveying feelings to female pigeons.
3. Cooing: Pigeons have their own way to convey their emotions and gesture. They can only coo but the pitch, sound and manner of cooing is different. They coo softly in affection when they want to attract a female pigeon. They also use cooing to convey to alert everyone if some predator is approaching or they coo in normal pitch to discuss the notes with each other regarding female pigeons, their nests and food sources.
4. Behavior: Few pigeons are stern, always with straight neck, they never make loud sound and look authoritative. Such pigeons are generally the older ones who are high on experience and make less noise. Whereas few pigeons are very noisy, they just make you feel their presence in the backyard by creating loud noise which becomes irritating at times. These pigeons are either preening their feathers and back area with female pigeons or make noises while billing which is a term to describe kissing in pigeons. When one pigeon puts its beak in the beak of other pigeon, it is referred to as billing.
5. Feeding: this is also one form of communication. Male pigeons generally approach female pigeons with some food offering to convey his feelings. Feeding the other pigeon is a sign of affection and is done by pigeons for their spouses and baby pigeons too!

Birds have their own way of communicating and next time you would see pigeons, don't just woo them away from your balcony! Understand their moves and react accordingly! What if a pigeon is proposing to the other one!
