MISSION VIEJO, Calif – Bird-B-Gone’s ornithologist, Dr. Rob Fergus, recently gave a lecture to scientists from around the globe on urban bird control at the International Congress for Conservation Biology held in Auckland, New Zealand.
The lecture was titled “Urban bird Conservation: For Birds and People” and focused the practical aspects of urban bird conservation and education. Dr. Fergus also considered how urban bird conservation efforts could be integrated in sustainable city planning and design.

Urban settings attract birds for a variety of reasons, namely shelter and a continual food source. These birds can become a nuisance when they decided to roost or nest in areas where the buildup of bird droppings and nesting materials pose an operational, health or safety risk. Fergus proposed that Ornithologists work with cities and municipalities for humane effective solutions to bird problems.

Fergus specializes in urban ecology and human/wildlife interactions.  He received his Ph.D. in urban bird conservation from the University of Texas at Austin. In addition to researching and consulting on human/bird interactions in cities across the United States, Latin America, and Europe, Dr. Fergus currently teaches at Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey and Rosemont College in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Bird-B-Gone, Inc is the only bird control company with an on staff ornithologist.
