Refugee magpies fighting one another in Perth

There are not enough trees to go around for Perth’s magpies according to a bird expert.

Magpies in Perth’s southern suburbs are attacking and injuring one over territory because of a reduced amount of tree canopy.

Bird expert Gisela Kaplan says that cutting down mature trees on private property is creating ‘refugee birds’ and is creating a threat to the species.

She spoke with Adam Shand.
