Magpie attack on Cyclist - 28 Campbell St, Taringa QLD 4068
I was rolling up to the Whitmore Street Park on my Bike. As I approached the park, Maggy swooped me once, and then landed in a tree just above me. I was going to the park so I hopped off the bike and took my helmet off. It didn't swoop again, but it was definitely giving me the evil eye. It%u2019s like December, what is the matter with this stupid bird?
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 107 Macrossan Ave, Norman Park QLD 4170
The magpie hit the back of my helmet as I was out of the saddle going up the hill. Doesn't it know that the attack season is over? Does it have a second clutch? Was it angry with me for not voting for the magpie as bird of the year (it won without my support). Or did it not like my new helmet? I have been up this stretch of road many times in the past few months without an attack.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 625 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne VIC 3004
Magpie swooped down from a large elm tree on St Kilda Rd as I was walking along footpath towards the city, outside of Wesley College Junior Campus and pecked hard at the inner corner of my left lower eyelid with its beak closed. It has left a red mark and still sore to touch late tonight. It just missed my eye by mm so very lucky. I was wearing a black sleeveless top with not hat and carrying nothing in my hands. Gave me such a fright!
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Person - College St, Sydney NSW 2000
We were testing our drone that we just bought (not flying, just checking if it was working). The Magpie directly aimed at it. My partner stood up to make the bird flight away. We left right away.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - City Walk Surgery, 39 Ainslie Pl, Canberra ACT 2601
I was swooped as I wheeled my bike past the doors of the Canberra Centre, near the Lorna Jane entry. I ran to the eaves of the nearby shops to avoid the bird. He waited in a nearby tree and as soon as I tried to leave he would swoop me again. This went on for more than half an hour! He would target other cyclists but as soon as he saw me step out into the open he would stop, fly back and attack me. A lovely lady eventually helped me by grabbing my bike and waving the bird away as he continued to try and swoop me. He followed me all the way around the corner, past NAB bank. Bistanders identified the bird as a Pied Currawong. This is the second time the same bird had attacked me. I have a couple of large bumps and sizable scratches on my head, it drew a fair bit of blood.
Injured:Yes
