During the breeding season a variety of Australian Birds instinctively protect their territory, nest and young until the baby birds are old enough to fly. This usually lasts for about 6 to 10 weeks.
 

The Australian Magpie, Magpie-larks, Butcher Birds and Masked Lapwings are the main birds that adopt this behaviour; and protective measures should be taken to protect yourself for this period of time.

Male Brush Turkeys, although not an aggressive bird, can be a problem as they begin building a mound from the organic material available in the immediate area; and will maintain the nest until all eggs hatch.

 

 


Brush Turkey's

Male Brush Turkeys begin building a mound from the organic material available in the immediate area. Once the mound is complete the male will tend to it by adding and removing material in order to maintain the temperature contained within the decomposing material.

By maintaining the nest he hopes to attract a female who will show her approval by depositing
her eggs in the mound. Once she lays the eggs the male continues to maintain the nest until hatching.

Removing the male brush turkey stops the mating ritual from taking place but also allows another brush turkey to take his place next season.

For the few weeks before the eggs are deposited the mound may be destroyed and treated to deter the male from continuing to tend to it which results in the female laying her eggs somewhere else.

I offer the following services:

* Brush Turkey trapping & relocation

* Natural liquid deterrent

* Bird deterrents

 


Crows

Large numbers of crows are living in suburban areas, making their roosts in backyards and parks. They can be noisy, messy and destructive. 

Crows are protected and it is illegal to trap or bait them or to disturb their nests when raising young.  If crows are damaging property or affecting health and wellbeing they can be removed.

Crows can be very difficult to catch, so there are other options that may be looked at, such as deterrents or finding and removing what has attracted them to begin with.

I offer the following services:

* Crow dispersal

* Crow advice & control

* Barrier control fencing

* Bird deterrents

 

 

    

 

 


Magpies, Magpie Larks & Butcherbirds

Magpies have a defined territory that they inhabit and raise their young. In general a placid bird, but in the 4 to 6 weeks of nesting they become aggressive and very territorial. Magpie's will only defend their nest within a ‘defence zone’. 

This defensive behaviour can range from a non-contact swoop, through to pecking, dive-bombing and sometimes front-on attacks from the ground. More serious attacks may lead to bloodied ears  and cheeks or even eye injury.

Therefore all magpie attacks need to be taken seriously. 

EHP regulations allow the problem magpie to be trapped and transported at least 50 kilometres away (in a straight line) and, where possible, at least 10 kilometres from the nearest human settlement.

I offer the following services:

* Magpie trapping & relocation

* Butcherbird trapping & relocation

* Barrier control fencing 

* Magpie warning signs

* Bird deterrents

 

 


Masked Lapwings

Like magpies, plovers have a defined territory that they inhabit and raise their young. In general a placid bird, but during nesting they become aggressive and very territorial. Plover's will only defend their nest within a ‘defence zone’. 

This defensive behaviour can range from a non-contact swoop, through to pecking, dive-bombing and sometimes front-on attacks from the ground.

They are a hard bird to catch as they leave the nest when they are frightened.

A number of methods can be used to try and catch these birds but usually it is easier to allow them nesting time and set up deterrents before the next breeding season.

I offer the following services:

* Plover advice & control

* Plover Dispersal

* Barrier control fencing 

* Plover warning signs

* Bird deterrents

 

 


Welcome Swallows

Swallows are often a nuisance in suburban areas as they build their mud nests that damage and deface the outer walls and eaves of residences and office buildings. 

Swallow faeces often end up on the sides of buildings and the ground below from the colony of birds in residence.

The bacteria, fungal agents and parasites found in swallow droppings and nests can carry a host of serious diseases, including histoplasmosis, encephalitis, salmonella, meningitis, toxoplasmosis and more.

I offer the following services:

* Swallow advice & control

* Nest Removal

* Bird deterrents

 

You must be licensed with the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP) to catch and remove native wildlife.
