Magpie attack on Cyclist - 12 Sturt St, Townsville City QLD 4810
This magpie must live on one of the trees in the vicinity and they are low branches, so it is very aggressive. I was not injured but it goes for cyclists riding with red helmets, which i do. My other mates in the bunch never get attacked. It was my second swoop. Some in the bunch jokingly said I have a new girlfriend! So they are calling me Maggie. Lol
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 270 Albert St, Brisbane City QLD 4000
On my return journey I got attacked again twice by the same maggie - very persistent. He needs to be relocated, as I have heard of a number of cyclists who have been targeted by this bird, and it is right on a busy road.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 755 Samford Rd, Keperra QLD 4054
Cycling up hill past mitchelton high school. Swooped 3 times albeit when I yelled at it the magpie backed off. Came close enough to hear wings flapping and beak clapping but did not make contact.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 213 Richmond Rd, Morningside QLD 4170
I had walked from the Windemere Ave direction and was not swooped, however upon my return I was swooped multiple times all the way up to just before Molloy Road. I was walking with my pram and hit a sprint trying to avoid being injured, the magpie got very close but did not cause injury... not for lack of trying.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 12 Taylors Rd, Gaythorne QLD 4051
Near-miss. Saw the magpie on the wire so after I rode past, I stopped, got off my bike and looked up and caught him mid-swoop. He then backed off and hid in a tree after I looked straight at him. Walked my bike for about another 10 - 15 mins then rode away without incident. Cycling alone.
Injured:No
