One would think that there would be no birds left in Minnesota during the winter months, as it is assumed that all birds fly south for the winter. This puts all birds in California, Texas, and sunny Miami, right?!? No. There are several species of birds that fly into Minnesota (from further north) as the food sources are much more prevalent in the winter months. Some birds don’t migrate and simply remain put.

When the temperatures are this low and the weather is this harsh, it is easy to understand why a bird or a squirrel might look for shelter from the cold. After all, a nest cannot possibly be as warm as a cozy garage, an interior wall or attic. In addition to a warm place to sleep, our homes also offer food and water as well, which can be in short supply these days for wild animals in Minnesota. The ground is frozen, and snow covered and that makes it difficult to find anything to eat. So, if you have seen signs of birds, squirrels or other wild animals inside your home, call the team at Minnesota Wild Animal Management ASAP. We will find the invaders, remove them safely, humanly and make sure that they cannot return.

Most snakes will burrow down in the ground, under rocks, or in residential crawl spaces to hibernate, but some snakes have found their way inside during the late fall and are now hibernating indoors. So, what can you do? What should you do? At Minnesota Wild Animal Management, we want to put your mind at ease and give you some pointers on how to handle this situation
