Between July and December some of Brisbane’s native bird species may become defensive and swoop people who venture too close to their nesting site.
Living with wildlife
Brisbane’s native animals and birds play an important role in our city’s biodiversity and it is an offence to harm them. They help to control pest insects and spread native vegetation. While some native animals can have nuisance behaviours, such as swooping magpies and noisy crows, the benefits of living with wildlife outweigh the negative impacts.
If you find a sick, injured and/or orphaned wild animal, phone the RSPCA on 1300 ANIMAL (1300 264 625).
