A meeting by chance in 2016, these two successful entrepreneurs, in two very separate industries have joined forces to help different industries save money and protect their assets from the billions of dollars of damage done by birds on an annual basis.

Russ Adams…

AKA “The Bird Whisper” is a licensed Falconer who has extensive experience working with birds of prey in many different settings.  His in depth knowledge of the avian world and how they live in their natural environments provided him with the expertise required to design  successful effigies.  Russ’ desire to protect the birds from inhumane treatment and help with territorial relocation keeps his mind in constant motion developing new effigies to use in a multitude of different situations.




Stephen Dougherty birdsStephen Dougherty… 

An innovator and passion for designing everything from boats to birds to theme park rides, Stephen oversees all engineering, design and manufacturing of the effigies.  He possess a drive and motivation for rapid-product-development, all the while, maintaining a level of quality which exceeds his customer’s expectations.  His tool box consists of a team of certified engineers, high tech CNC machinery and a team of skilled craftsmen and women.  Stephen has many years working with composites and the cutting-edge materials used to produce the effigies.



When cell/communication tower owners deploy the Bird Deterrent Technologies life-like ‘Vulture Decoy’, the results are almost instantaneous – birds get agitated, confused and quickly migrate to another property that present a less threatening sight picture. After countless hours of testing and in-filed, on-site evaluations, Bird Deterrent Technologies has means tested and deployed the most realistic Vulture Bird Deterrent available. To an approaching bird, it looks very, very life-like (or lifeless) often creating a confused and agitated state. While sounding simplistic, these agitated and confused emotions are easily transferred bird-to-bird exponentially creating confusion among the approaching flock.


Bird Deterrent Technologies simplistic, yet humane approach to deterring nuisance birds has established them as the leaders in cell and communication tower bird control. Towers that are free of birds are not only safer to work and service, but the associated communications equipment suspended from these towers tend to have a longer in-service life as a result of being free from bird droppings.
