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.
THIRD PARTY REPORT: Witnessed swooping of woman walking down road, she was swooped three times, the bird made contact with her head on the second swoop. I do not know whether she was injured.
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.
Magpie on ground to the right of the bike-path flew-up to a tree as I approached and then had one lazy swoop from behind as I passed.
I don't think his heart was in it.
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.
Magpie swooping multiple times from front and back of small preschool child. Was trying to aim to attack face.
The Same Magpie then decided to try to swoop the preschoolers baby brother nearby.
Magpie then flies to nearby tree far away from where it was before the swooping and watches child who was in the playground area
