was walkign home from the bus stop when i suddenly heard a flapping noise upon me i looked above and a magpie was making its way towards me i initially ducked and started to run and it followed me attempting to to peck me twice
A magpie flew straight at my helmet when I was cycling through the corner of Ocean Gate Parade (Iluka) and Marmion Avenue (Joondalup). I was not injured but was quite shaken up; the magpie appeared every bit as shaken up as I was as it sat on the ground looking quite dazed for a while after its attack on me.
I was walking slowly towards the tram stop when the magpie swooped and attacked my eyes , it all happened so fast! I got a few scratches with blood oozing out. My roommate was attacked in the same way and was injured too, she got attacked a day before me , at the same spot. Just beside the subway located at the junction between union street and queen st Kilda road.
This maggie is a very late season one. I've been swooped every morning 28 November to 1 December. It is non-aggressive, and will chase you down the hill (when going fast) but not up it. Three or four quick chasing swoops, and you can see the shadow of it quite clearly.
Cycling when a magpie swooped my helmet (had fake eyes on it). I then went undercover and it waited for me on a power line to make a move. When I came out from undercover it attempted to swoop me again.
