Magpie attack on Cyclist - 51 MacFarland Cres, Chifley ACT 2606
Between bus stops and past Threlfall St intersection. At least two magpies have swooped at me about five times each in my morning and in evening ride around 5.30/6pm in the last three days. They can get very close so my only defense is to wave my hands above head. Dismounting off bike doesn't really work, except to safely keep eyes on the birds but the moment your back is turned they're going for swoops and warning other birds on the street. Also saw the birds swoop at pedestrians.
