Magpie Breeding Season Is Here

Please note that magpies will display aggression towards the public to defend their young and may try to forcibly take food from people in parks. Avoid areas where this is occurring by changing cycling and walking routes and picnic areas frequented by magpies in the short term. It is likely that this behaviour will cease by the end of November.

The City does not act upon these incidences due to it being a natural occurrence.
