This magpie is a **** !!!
Got off bike and it kept going. Eventually went for another rider.
Bird made a 4cm cut to back of neck, nearly separated earphone cord
Suddenly felt a scratch on the back of my neck and looked behind me and could see the wings of the magpie and once I got out of the tree-line and looked behind me and saw the magpie sitting on a branch.
Cycling along here at about 35kph this Vampire Magpie of Doom clawed and pecked at the back of my neck twice within about ten seconds. Both attacks drew blood. (This was under the trees so I couldn't see his shadow.) I think the second time he was more interested in drinking my blood than anything else, the crazy animal.
p.s. Remember cyclists, don't flinch or take evasive action! A scratch might sting but a crash is so much worse.
This ninja-like bird is silent. It had two tries within 5-10 seconds and scratched the back of my neck. This must have been a precision attack since I was riding in a fairly aero position. This bird knows what it's doing.
I'm assuming this is the Dairy Rd Angry Bird with a large radius.
