13 year old was riding home and was swooped with helmet contact the first time, then fell off bike after a second swoop. The magpie continued to swoop as she was on the ground and had to be fended off with a pencil case.
I was walking to school when a magpie (I call it the tuxedo bird), came swooping above my head. I was listening to headphone so I didn't realize what just happen. I haven't experienced this before so I was just looking around to know if I'm the the target. so it did it again and swoop really fast close to my head. it was like it was intending to hit me then changed its mind at the last minute. I was wearing a hat so that may be the reason. I started walking a bit fast to get out of the area because i believed the bird is being territorial and I was freaking out a little since it's a first for me. it might came swooping to me a third time but I cant remember exactly. And since then I became very suspicious of trees and birds and started looking over my shoulder every time i'm walking.
Magpie swooped and immediately came in from the right side clipping my eye with its claw. No warning swoop. Swooped me again even after i had crossed to the north side of Constitution Ave.
Same magpie, same silent attack. 3cm cut on my face (through my beard).
Repeated attacks, used to being swooped on my way to work but this one is silent and waits for you not to look.
