Was walking slowly, head down. Heard a swooping thought it was something else but then I saw it. It didn't injure me but it took my hairtie :'( Goodbye hairtie.
Attack by Butcher Bird opposite National Rhododendron Gardens at the gate to walkway across the road from NRG parking. Attacked side of my face causing injury and bleeding, very very aggressive bird
A well known but unidentified bird attacks cyclists on King St side of the Concord West pedestrian tunnel. I think it may be a Butcherbird. As per another poster, it prefers the right side of the face. Drew blood on my nose and gave me a fat lip a few hours later.
This magpie swooped while I was waiting for the lights and again as I crossed the intersection. It's on the way to the Harding St bridge which is a very popular running/cycling path.
