A Unexpected swoop from a Pied ButcherBird on Bardon Avenue this afternoon. (NOTE: Pied ButcherBird is related to a Australian Magpie) I rode on Bardon Avenue on Monday the 5th of December and never got swooped. I don't understand what changed. The Pied ButcherBird attacked 5 times. I suggest to avoid this route since the bird is very defensive and aggressive.
A Pied ButcherBird attacked me 5 times on Bardon Avenue, Burleigh Waters after riding past Miami Retirement Village. I rode on Bardon Avenue on Monday and never got swooped. Maybe it made a nest there or something.
Was visiting Wedge island then made a last minute desision to go to north island and as soon as I hit the sand a magpie took my sunflower hat. I was extremely upset as the sunflower hat was my great great grandmothers hat.
DON'T GO TO NORTH ISLAND OR THEY WILL SWOOP YOU AT TAKE YOU SUNFLOWER HAT THAT YOUR GREAT GREAT GRANDMOTHER GAVE YOU!!!
Was cycling at fast pace then it started swooping, followed for 100m.
Is awfully close to houses, didn't touch me though. Thought magpie season ended in November...
I am a little bit unsure of the exact location, but what I know for sure is it was after that bush biking track that connects to rails to trails. The track had a branching path that leads to houses and roads, and when I came to the roads I was swooped.
