I have been in Adelaide and Sydney recently  as well as being at home in Campbell (ACT).  I have become more and more concerned and annoyed by the increasing numbers and increasingly dominant presence of Noisy Miners in all these places.  The adults can be aggressive to people and to other birds. They can threaten the well-being of other birds and kill baby ones.  I know that they are a native species and so are automatically protected by law.  Is there is any possibility that these birds could  be reduced in numbers?

Not the findings we would have preferred, but valuable research.
