A council in Melbourne’s north-east will lobby the government to declare the Indian myna bird a pest, as the tiny birds wreak havoc in backyards across Melbourne.

Banyule City Council is calling for a nationwide approach to tackling the problem, which they say is out of control.

Cr Langdon told Tom Elliott on 3AW Drive they need to be declared pests.

‘They are becoming more plague proportions in suburbia, they really should be declared a pest,’ he said.

‘Clearly we need to address them.’
