Bird Removal Services
During the nesting periods, bird and human conflicts escalate with species such as Magpies, Scrub Turkeys, Plovers, Butcher birds and other species vigorously defending their territory, young and nests. The nature of these conflicts vary greatly with each species, with management needs varying with each individual scenario. These scenarios may be due to physical strike by defensive magpies and butcher birds, through to the destructive nesting habits of a male brush turkey looking to establish a mound in preparedness for coming reproductive opportunities.

Species of interest
A number of species are responsible for the bulk of bird and human conflicts that we are asked to attend to. These include the following species:
A significantly dangerous bird in the event contact is being made when swooping. Magpies have the potential to cause serious head and facial injuries and often cause responses from people out of fright that present a danger to themselves or the people around them. An iconic species which is well known for its high densities within the suburban landscape.
A strong and powerful bird with a work ethic like few other animal species, the brush turkey can cause significant damage to suburban gardens and sensitive vegetation as it constructs it’s impressive mound. The standard vegetative composition of most gardens is no match for this industrious bird who can turn a well manicured garden and lawn into a composting mound within days. Efforts to stop these birds are often futile with substantial modifications of the backyard layout required to effectively deter the birds from utilising there selected locality.
Two species are known to swoop humans; the Grey Butcher bird and the Pied Butcher bird. Both species have hooked beaks which can cause significant injuries to the head and face with eye injuries common with this species. Of all the birds to deal with butcher birds are by far the most challenging when avoiding personal injury, as they are swift in flight and in many cases more than one bird will swoop. Some scenarios we have encountered have included 6 individuals working in unison to deliver defensive strikes via ambush from numerous directions!
Often referred to as a plover, which is a name rightfully given to a group of shorebirds, the masked lapwing is a common inhabitant of open landscapes such as grasslands, suburban parks and gardens and notoriously sporting ovals and school grounds. Although highly reluctant to make contact masked lapwings show a determined nature when looking to drive potential threats away from there highly exposed nest, eggs and chicks.
