Description of Osprey
The Osprey, also know as the fish hawk, is a large, fish-eating raptor. Ospreys are well adapted for fishing. They have long legs and large feet equipped with barbs, long talons, and a reversible toe that allows the bird to easily grasp fish. They have an oily coat to make them waterproof and are able to close their nostrils when they plunge into the water. The osprey has very strong wings to enable them to come out of the water even with a heavy fish. Ospreys are brown on top with white on the bottom, yellow eyes, and white heads with a black stripe that sets them apart from eagles. Due to their diet preference, ospreys are generally found nesting near water.
Damages Caused by Osprey
Ospreys generally leave humans alone. They become a problem when they nest on top of chimneys if they are not capped. There are laws and regulations that keep these nests protected if an egg or young is present. Critter Control of Cape Cod is aware of laws and regulations and implements wildlife control within them.
Critter Control of Cape Cod will remove the nest once all species animals are gone. Once the nest is removed, your technician will get repair damages, clean up messes, and prevent future Osprey problems. Chimney caps will remove the possibility of osprey's nesting on your chimney again.
Upon arrival your Critter Control of Cape Cod technician will be able to identify rather you have a osprey nesting on your chimney or not.
