This magpie has a rap sheet a mile long with many grevious bodily harm incidents - after multiple contacts leading to bleeding scratches on the back and ear - this (murderous) magpie is not afraid of anything. Should have known better than to ride this path, although it was very late in the season.
Currawong took one swoop past head at bike rack in front of mall. Wtf ? This is the second time this has happened at the bike rack 1st time it took a couple of dives . wtf currawong unbelievable
Cycling into Westfield car park and this guy hit me at least a dozen times. I did everything by the book but to no avail. He even followed me up a flight of stairs. This was all inside the undercover car park. Two days later he did the same thing to my wife. I suffered a small cut to the ear.
There were 2 magpies here, both swooping at the same time. They were very aggressive, with some actually hitting my shoulders while I rode. Their territory is a little larger than others, so beware.
Very protective butcher bird has taken to swooping rides, both descending down to Cotter and climbing back up to Stromlo. Chased me for a good 200m. Makes noise, but no contact
