Magpie attack on Cyclist - Cotter Road, Canberra ACT 2611
Going downhill, went straight for my right ear from the side without the usual beak/wing warning. It was so silent that a ninja would have been ashamed. I covered my right ear then it went for my left ear, drawing blood on both ears. Chased and pecked me for about 200 metres. Will be avoiding this route. It seems to have developed a taste for human flesh.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Walker - 74 Fawthrop Street, Portland VIC 3305
Attacked every year at the local high school and no one will do anything about. One stupid bird is putting the students of this school at risk every single day when we go to leave school via the car park where parents pick up.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Person - 146W McDonalds Road, Epping VIC 3076
Was just minding my own business and BAM! Got ****** bashed by a magpie. Was strolling along the cricket pitch and just like that, I took a stump to the forehead, this magpie looked like a fly in the distance and I was swatting it with my hands, wondering... Why won't you go away fly?...
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Cotter Road, Weston Creek ACT 2611
Same bird as the others on this strip presumably. Came from the trees on the left heading out towards cotter. Result: cut and bleending ear. He and two others attacked me on the way back also. I would avoid this road for the next six weeks especially if riding alone...
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Beach Road, Hampton VIC 3188
Riding under a stand of tall trees as I was heading south on the cycle track just before the Sandringham Yacht Club driveway, I heard a loud squawking noise behind me and felt pecking on my helmet just above my left ear. The bird nicked my ear with its beak, drawing a small spot of blood. I waved my left arm and shouted loudly - thankfully it flew away immediately. The track was fairly straight and I kept full control of my bike, not falling off.
Injured:Yes
