Starlings are a small species of birds that work relentlessly to build their nests. They enjoy nesting inside attics, dryer vents, soffits, fan vents in bathrooms, and other areas that are accessible to them.
Starlings are an invasive species to North America and are one of three species of birds not protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918. This means they have an open season year-round, where other birds have a specific season for hunting, or have no season at all.
When Starlings nest in attics, they have a lot of room to work with and will make an extremely large nests, as shown in the picture. Even when they nest in confined spaces, such as a dryer vent, they will still make a mess. It is extremely import to remove the birds and their nesting materials, which can cause fire hazards or block off ventilation to the home, which can restrict how the home breathes and retains heat in the winter.
