2 Big Boys flew straight at me, landing on the ground 2 meters in front. They began to Squawk and run up very aggressively- I crossed the road very quickly and proceeded to walk backwards not breaking eye contact. But I bet the little troublemakers would have done damage without quick thinking- very scary!
A magpie swooped at me about 4 times. I tried to escape and cross Mannigham Rd and it followed me and kept swooping! I sat in a bus shelter until I was sure it had flown away LOL I was a bit rattled but luckily, I didn't get hurt.
Magpie nesting in a tree next to the gravel walkway into the Geoscience Australia building. Mainly seems to swoop me after I turn east to enter GA property. Aggressive swooper but has not made contact (yet). The best way to avoid it would probably be entering Geoscience Australia from the south side (bus-stop side) - well into the grassed area, then back to the road to avoid having to climb down the hill. Crossing at the creek on the north side doesn't work to stop swooping.
the "Paris Punisher". Attacks using magpie ninja stealth skills when we were all busy looking after the kids - then twice attacks my daughter paris of 3 years by pecking her ear at the playground in the park. The Paris punisher may have been responsible for this attack on my 2 year old daughter last year. The paris punisher is not afraid of sticks or even a traffic cone that my wife threw at it while up in the tree.
Attacked 4 times and hit helmet hard, felt like he got me through my helmet but it did not draw blood, certainly a more sustained and aggressive attach than in the morning.
