WILDLIFE Rescue came to the aid of three orphaned magpies on Sunday.
Rosemary Lee called the rescue team after she heard the birds making noise.
Wildlife Rescue collected two of the birds before the third was found later on by Ms Lee.
Ms Lee said the mother was hit by a car leaving the father to fend for the family.
"Only the male was feeding them so I put out a bit more food for the. He was flat out," she said.
The father was also hit by a car leaving the baby birds orphaned.
Ms Lee called Wildlife Rescue who came out, climbed the tree and are now taking care of the birds.
Ms Lee said she has always been fond of animals having kept wild ducks and chickens before as well as a friendly wallaby.
Lynne Waller from Wildlife Rescue said the birds were not hurt.
"They're pretty shellshocked and one had minor injuries but nothing serious," she said.
"They'll stay with us until the end of November and be released back into the wild when they can do things for themselves."
Ms Waller said it was Wildlife Rescue's first call out for the spring season.
"Normally we have four or five by now," she said.
Wildlife Rescue is on call 24 hours a day to help injured animals. They can be contacted on 0419 356 433.
