Bird-B-Gone has added an ornithologist to its team of bird control specialists to help customers tackle tough bird problems.
“Ask the Bird Expert” will be a helpful new tool in the bird control industry. Having the insight of an ornithologist will close the gap between the science of nature, and the nature of bird control.
Dr. Rob Fergus is an ornithologist who specializes in urban ecology and human/wildlife interactions. Fergus received his Ph.D. in urban bird conservation from the University of Texas at Austin. After founding the Hornsby Bend Bird Observatory in Austin, Texas he created additional bird conservation programs in Austin as the first executive director of the 2,500 member Travis Audubon Society. In 2004 he moved to suburban Philadelphia where he was the Senior Scientist for Urban Bird Conservation at the National Audubon Society until 2009. 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, N.J. and Rosemont College in Philadelphia, Pa.
Customers posting questions will receive answers from a Ph.D in Ornithology on a variety of topics including bird control, bird behavior and more. The new page will have a “Meet the Ornithologist” section with a bio, list of qualifications and an archive of previously asked questions and answers. “Ask the Expert” is just one of the many free resources Bird-B-Gone offers to their customers. With over 60 years of combined hands on experience from the Bird-B-Gone team, “Ask the Bird Expert” is a natural addition to the Bird-B-Gone website at www.birdbgone.com.
