I was walking home on adelaide park road when a magpie flew down and started attacking me. I started running as fast as i could and the bird followed me still trying to attack me. Eventually i got a way from it and i got a lift home. The attack was on adelaide park road on the footpath near the t intersection

Magpie attack on Walker - 87 Adelaide Terrace, East Perth WA 6004
There is a traffic signal at this location along with a huge tree nearby wher the magpie has its nest. The magpie just sits on that signal (itself) and bites one person out of many crossing that intersection.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 50 Du Faur St, Mawson ACT 2607
Heading South this morning, as I have many a day and never had a problem. Today this bird took exception to me for whatever reason. I heard the squawk behind me, and I guess it came after my left ear, because I felt it brush against that shoulder, but it didn't make contact with my helmet or any part of my head.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 551-585 Berwick-Cranbourne Rd, Clyde North VIC 3978
There is at least one magpie sitting on one of those trees and attacks. It attacked me a few times very viciously but always on the way out of/from Berwick towards Clyde North new estates. It keeps going for good 100-200 meters where the new estate housing starts. Very recently me and another rider were attacked by 2 magpies in that spot travelling relatively close to each other. Almost fell off the bike but no injuries as such, just scary experience as its a 80km/h zone with single lane each way and people speeding there, no bike designated lane or path. Can be deadly.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 84 Emu Bank, Belconnen ACT 2617
swooped twice while riding my bike near the Belconnen Arts Centre. This is one aggressive bird. I got hit twice near my left ear. Later in the day while sitting in my car at the traffic lights I witnessed this bird swooping three other cyclists. Pecking their helmets and ears. Looks like a currawong.
Injured:Yes
