MANDURAH Wildlife Rescue volunteers have been driven crazy by two magpies crowing like roosters all day.

Vice chairwoman Kim Low said a year ago an injured magpie came to the rescue centre from a farm and it crowed like a rooster.

Another magpie came to the centre as a baby and learnt to crow from the other magpie.

“It drove us crazy having two of them doing it all day – no one told them it’s only meant to be a morning sound,” Ms Low said.

The first magpie from the farm has since been released.

“So now we have just the one rooster maggie,” Ms Low said.

“We call her Rooster Girl and she is a favourite with our volunteers.”
