I f you can tap it with a shovel and it doesn't move,why don't you just remove it ? for heavens sake.
I agree, remove the problem before it gets older
I'm telling you now Brisbane Finches, catch and take it away, even if it is premature, or otherwise you WILL have problems and birds will be getting killed left, right, front and center

Hi everyone,

Well, the Butcherbird’s back at it again, except this time he’s sitting in the thick shrub behind my aviary, which is in my neighbour’s yard, and since my new aviary is much bigger, I can’t get to him when he’s on the wire part of the roof. He’s still in his juvenile plumage, but he can fly very well now. Any suggestions?

Buy some fruit netting, put it over the aviary, and invest in a sling shot and thats about all you can do mate

The netting can just be draped over the avairy. That's what we did to keep the hawk from getting mums budgies through the wire. Mind you she already has double wire. And I think the net worked because the hawk got its talons tangled and had to pull loose. But any extra layer is better than none.

A mate of mine recommended putting palm leaves on top of the flight section of the aviary to alter rainfall, so I think I'll do that, because it might deter that pesky butcherbird too. I'll also put some fruit netting down the front.

Thanks
Aidan

Observe the plant matter on the wire roof, as it will hold moisture and cause the wire to rot out faster. Good short term solution but.
