Many of New York'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 York'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 Westchester 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 Harrison animal control for wildlife issues.

Harrison Wildlife Removal Tip: How do pigeons communicate?

We can all appreciate the beautiful sound of birds singing. The sweet, melodic sound inspires bird lovers to track them for miles just to hear their song. You don't have to go very far to hear the sound of a pigeon. There is no beautiful singing, just the barely audible cooing that you hear outside your office window. In large groups the sound can be quite bothersome. Pigeons make different sounds in order to communicate with each other.

What different sounds do pigeons make?

• A cooing sound is made when they are happy. It is similar to the purring sound a cat makes. It is also used to communicate with their mate.
• A grunting noise is made when they are alarmed. It indicates that they have been frightened.
• The "roo-koo wak-wak" noise is made to indicate displeasure. It is often made by a male pigeon to warn off other males.
• They “chortle” to draw the attention of a mate. This is usually accompanied by walking in circles and fanning their tail feathers.

Mating ritual

• The male will puff out his neck fine hair before lowering his head plus circling the female.
• The male will then run following the female, dragging his tail on the earth.
• The male will “herd” the female missing from previous males.
• Just before mating the female will place her beak (bill) inside the beak of the male. They will then bob their heads up as well as down rhythmically.
• After mating the male will fly up and clap his wings collectively, making an audible clapping sound.

Other ways of communicating

Apart from the sounds that are made by pigeons, they also communicate by using gestures • Pigeons that are trying to keep other birds away from their nests will open its wings to look bigger. It will puff its chest and peck at the culprit.
• When baby pigeons get hungry they will open their beaks widely until they are fed by a parent.

Communicating with humans

Pigeons are believed to be more intelligent than most other bird species. Apart from their navigation skills, they also have excellent eyesight. People have trained pigeons to help them search for orange life jackets at sea. Experiments have been done in which pigeons have been shown pictures and then taught the words associated with the pictures. They were able to peck the correct symbol when given the word.
