That is not the answer. Noisy Miners thrive in the urban human altered landscape. So humans then just kill the Miners? What next? Typical human behaviour, cause environmental change then take it out on the wildlife!  Doesn’t work anyway. The actual answer is to repair the landscape with appropriate trees and other foliage.

I think we are all aware of the damage Noisy Miners do to other birds.  However it was very clearly illustrated on last night’s ABC Catalyst program “The secret life of our urban birds” produced by Ann Jones.  It clearly showed Noisy Miners attacking small birds.  Isn’t it possible for bird groups to put pressure the relevant authorities to trap and kill Noisy Miners in the same way that Common Mynahs are?
