Got swooped crossing the road. The bugger got me on my face.
I've been swooped around this spot twice this year (but that was back in August) and a couple times over the last couple of years. This magpie is a super aggressive magpie & goes for anyone.
He usually swoops from late August - early October. I haven't seen him for a few weeks, so it was weird that I was attacked late November.
I've made a few requests to the council to have him removed as he is super aggressive and goes for everyone. Unfortunately they were no help :(
Swooped several times and I stopped and started walking. Kept looking at him while he sat on cable. After walking about 100m he came back and swooped even I was still walking. Walked another 100m then he didn't follow anymore. Very aggressive and persistent fellow, swooped about 10 times together
My 4 year old daughter has been swooped 4 times in the past three days. It has been in the same spot (within 20 meters). The bird has made contact with her head but the beak has not made contact. Today she was attacked from behind as she approached the front door of our house. The other times have been when the bird is on the ground and come up at her face and the other time it attacked her from the branch of a near by tree.
Last year my son was swooped and pecked in the face by a magpie in the same spot.
Swooped by magpie twice whilst walking, 3yr old grandson on his balance bike swooped three times making contact with his helmet. This has occurred one other time a week earlier. No injuries.
I was swooped as I rode past the Canberra centre entry. The bird made contact with my helmet a couple of times and pursued me around the corner to Petrie Plaza. I hid under the eaves of the Canberra Centre. The bird waited for me on a nearby light post for around 10 minutes before flying away
Magpie attached whilst riding in the cycling lane on the Northbound side of Drakeford Dr before the roundabout with Johnstone Dr/Woodcock Dr. Magpie hit back of Helmet with such force I was almost knocked off the bike and strained my neck . Magpie attacked twice and was trying to get his beak underneath the helmet.
