You are here

Spring is here, the sun is shining, flowers are blooming and magpies are swooping. Magpies may swoop to defend their offspring and nest if they feel threatened. The best way to avoid being swooped is to avoid passing too close to trees containing nests and to never provoke a magpie by drawing attention to yourself or throwing objects. 
If you are concerned about a particularly troublesome bird, contact Wildcare Helpline on (08) 9474 9055 or visit the Parks and Wildlife Services website for further advice.
