Magpie Alert: Learning to Live with a Wild Neighbour

UNSW Press, 2002 - 157 páginas
Wherever people live in Australia, magpies tend to be found there, too. These very familiar birds are one of our most loved and admired wild birds. Yet, during the breeding season, many magpies become extremely aggressive toward people, sometimes causing serious injury or distress, especially to children. The fact that this is a very common, well loved yet sometimes dangerous neighbor makes solving the magpie-human conflict very complicated. This book provides, for the first time, a comprehensive guide to everything that is known about this bird, why it attacks, and what we can do about it.
