hi All,
I'd appreciate any suggestions on deterring swooping butcherbirds (Grey 
Butcherbird, in Bullaburra west of Sydney) - my friend has a newborn baby and 
can barely get out to the washing line to hang out nappies... She has to go out 
wielding a broom "helicopter style".
Can anyone suggest anything other than waiting till nesting season is over?
There was one idea, to leave mince on the fence - would it still swoop the hand 
that feeds it, would it become demanding as well as swoop? thoughts on this?And 
how safe is the baby in the backyard (not to mention her 8 year old...).
Thanks in advance.
