pest bird control

My name is Ben Gregor-Smith. By profession I have always been a Musician, but since an early age I have always been fascinated by the art of Falconry. The feeling one gets when flying a bird of prey and watching it doing what a bird of prey does best is really a wonderful experience. It lets you access a freedom which in my opinion cannot be beaten. I have now practiced falconry for 15 years and have turned it into my second profession. Here at about-falconry based in Basel in Switzerland we offer days out with the birds so you can experience it for yourself how it is to fly a bird of prey. Also the main service we offer is pest bird control. In many places all over Switzerland and Europe crows and pidgeons are a real problem. There are so many of them (especially around cities and towns where it is easy for them to find food) and there are no effective ways of getting rid of them. There droppings cause a lot of damage and the birds themselves cause damage to buildings and are generally a nuisance.

This is where we can really help. Especially in places where the birds cannot be hunted in a traditional way... our birds of prey can scare the problem birds away. The birds of prey used to do this are Harris Hawks. These birds are used to flying together in a team and use this ability to encourage the pidgeon or crow population to move away from the area.

The birds of prey are trained to chase the crows and scare them but not necessarily to kill them. This keeps this method green and sustainable. Of course this cannot be guaranteed as the birds of prey are essentially wild animals and the Falconer cannot control every move that the bird makes.

The method works by coming and flying the birds of prey in the affected area regularly and often for a certain number of months. Of course at first the problem birds will come back. But after a while once they start to believe that the raptors live permantantly in the area. They will find a new permanent home.

If you would be interested in our pest bird control service please contact us for further details.


The Falcon Bird Species

The Falcon Bird species is the fastest of all the raptors. This page will include perigrine falcon video footage (the fastest animal on the planet :)) and a guide to information on many falcons and their training methods in falconry.

If you want information on the hawk bird species or the owl species please follow the links. Alternatively, you could check out my eagle facts page. Falcons, in their different forms can be found all over the world and vary hugely in size, behaviour, habitat and hunting techniques..


Fantastic Eagle Facts


Welcome to my Eagle Facts Page. On This Page I will provide you with Great Pictures of Eagles and information on the Eagle Bird Species. I will also give an insight into the use of eagles in falconry.


Im happy I finally signed up

It's in fact very difficult in this active life to
listen news on TV, so I just use world wide web for that purpose,
and get the newest information.
