Magpie attack on Cyclist - 33 Ainslie Pl, Canberra ACT 2601
This attack was actually by a Pied Currawong, not a magpie. I was cycling a short distance through the city on the footpath, not wearing a helmet. The magpie aggressively swooped me 4 times, making heavy contact with my head, It perused me for a long distance through the city's pedestrian mall: 2 blocks. Not sure what set it off, as I've not been swooped by a Currawong before. My lack of bike helmet may have given it more confidence.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Walker - 146 Goodfellows Rd, Murrumba Downs QLD 4503
Was walking out from beneath the big jacaranda on the corner of Esperance and Goodfellow, and then it attacked. Not too vicious, but quite persistent, and rather wide-ranging. Wearing my polarised sunglasses atop my head seemed to discourage it a little bit.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 15-17 Whitefriars Way, Donvale VIC 3111
I was walking home and this Magpie just flew back and forth over my head like 2 or 3 times until I started defending mysef, then it just flew into one of the nearby trees. This has happened to me twice today.
Injured:No
