Magpie attack on Person - 122 Rouse Street, Port Melbourne VIC 3207
The same bird keeps attacking my head every time I am out on my balcony. It actually scratched my scalp and was bleeding. It also attacks whoever is on the balcony, I hate it so much. It attacks everyday during nesting season which can last ages.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Trumper Street, Ermington NSW 2115
Swooping magpie still active after 3 months, will attack near the peak of Trumper street heading north and will follow across Victoria road. No contact made but will persistently swoop from behind. No audible warning. I suspect someone is feeding it.
Injured:No

Walking past trees next to Safeway on Hanson Road when I looked up and saw a Magpie in the tree as soon as I walked under the tree the bird swooped once and hovered near me for around 80 metres or so before flying away was not injured but swooped near my head.

Magpie attack on Walker - 13 Cations Court, Altona Meadows VIC 3028
There are always two magpies waiting for me when I walk down this court. As soon as I make eye contact with them they fly up onto the electrical wires and begin their swooping. I haven't gotten injured yet but thats because I sprint home from this court. Nowadays I carry a stick when I am walking in this area, haven't been swooped since.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Person - 84 Fieldstone Blvd, Beaconsfield VIC 3807
It has been swooping all year and at anytime of the day. A magpie in this location attacks anything on wheels, postmen, people in wheelchairs or walking devices it will attack within seconds of stepping foot near this area and it does not give up with the attack once it starts swooping its hard to make it stop. I spent this morning ringing people to see if the bird could be moved as my mum who is in a wheelchair can not step out the front door in her wheelchair or any of her aid equipment without being attacked, but to only be told that the local council or any council doesn't deal with these problems but for a fee of $264 or more a private contractor can. Something needs to be done!
Injured:No
