Magpie attack on Cyclist - 1/80 Denham St, Townsville City QLD 4810
I was riding my cruiser down the foot path just before the corner of Sturt Street and Denham when I got attacked by a magpie twice. It kept going for my yellow scrunchy. Not knowing this was even a thing, I panicked at rode into a wall when attempting to stop it. I grazed my legs and hurt the palm of my hand from the impact. Thanks to a friend of mine for directing me to this site, I now know what NOT to do in the incident of an attack.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Walker - 17 Petersham St, Petersham NSW 2049
Two magpies took turns diving close to my face, while I was sitting on a bench at Quinn Playground. I didn't know about swooping so I thought it was accidental at first and when they kept doing it I tried to shoo them away which made them way more aggressive and basically swooped every 5 seconds after that. I tried looking at them to scare them off, but I couldn't keep my eyes on both of them at the same time. I don't understand though, swooping season should be over.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 11 Rustic Gardens, Carramar WA 6031
I noticed this magpie a few days before checking me out whilst cycling!. The magpie swooped at me 4 times whilst cycling late in the afternoon on 24 October. The magpie appears to be quite vicious, it gave up swooping when I turned the corner onto the next road.
Injured:No
