Cycling was swooped could feel wings against my head, fell off bike. Magpie sat on power lines above me and watched me till it saw someone jogging about 200m down the road and went after them.
Attacked by magpie riding my bike pulling into work. Attacked me 3 times, hitting me the last time, causing me to come off my bike, over the handlebars. Fractured 2 vertebrae in my neck and a compression fracture to one vertebrae in my back. I needed to wear a Halo neck brace for 9 weeks. I still have pain in my back and neck. I will be starting to go back to work in January. What a menace of a bird.
I was walking home from Uni this morning when I was swooped twice by very large, very cranky Magpie. I have two puncture wounds on my head. After it got me, it focused it's attention on a dog across the street!Aggressive magpie Beware!
