“Occasionally birds make their way into the airport terminal. We use a variety of methods to catch and remove birds from indoor spaces and bring them safely back outside”.
It also specifies how the birds cause chaos when they poop all over and ruin artworks:
“Usually birds in the terminal pose no impact to operations, nor show any signs of distress. However, their excrement can be damaging to our beautiful artwork. In some cases, our art maintenance and curation team will cover artwork to prevent any bird excrement from landing on the items”.
Airport staff also warn that no one should feed the crows at the airport:
Many travelers are surprised at the crows being at the airport and share it on Twitter:
Know you’re back in BC when…
there’s wildlife in the Vancouver airport. Check out the #YVR crow!

Despite the numerous questions about how the crow got in, the Vancouver airport has provided some answers.
On their website, the airport explains:
“As the largest building in BC, with hundreds of doors and windows, birds can make their way inside the terminal from time to time. The open architecture inside the building allows the birds to find their way to almost any area within the terminal. The birds typically find their way out on their own, however, some opt to stay”.
