Was aware of this bird, I took my chances and it came straight for me, from a distance but didnâ€™t make contact. It seemed more aggressive than normal though. I found a long bit of bark off a tree to protect myself. This bird hates cyclists doesnâ€™t swoop walkers. I feed this bird and it still swoops me, Iâ€™ve worn my helmet and sunnies feeding it and it still swoops - there goes that theory
Swooped and struck on neck by Grey Butcherbird on Tennyson Creek bushwalk, a few minutes walk from the River Road West entrance. Very aggressive couple, possibly nesting. Didnâ€™t stick around to find out.
Magpie swooped cyclist, not aggressive but seems to favour cyclists with red / black on their helmets. I've seen it a fair few times, will swoop once, then stay in nearby tree - I haven't seen it attack again while you walk / cycle away.
Magpie was on road, so I crossed to avoid it. It flew next to me then flew up to the tree and swooped 3 times following me as I walked up Renwick St. I was attacked here 2 years ago.
I was running along the path towatda Ramsgate when a single magpie attacked me. Swooped from my left and attacked me resulting in a cut and blood near my left eye. Luckily i had Running glasses on so unsure if it was going for my glasses or my eye.
