Nesting Migratory Birds

"Migratory Birds" Cattle Egret

Texas is a major route for migratory birds shuttling between the United States and Canada; while this natural cycle can be beautiful, the springtime event can impact residential, commercial and industrial properties into the fall season.

Migratory birds, such as egrets, herons, and other waterbirds bring challenges such as noise, odor, and significant amounts of excrement covering streets, sidewalks, roofs, and cars on public and private property.

City staff is unable to address any of these issues while the birds are nesting due to their protected status under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. However, there are some actions residents can take before and after the breeding season to help deter the birds from nesting in the area.
