Magpie attack on Cyclist - 1864 Gold Coast Hwy, Burleigh Heads QLD 4220
This bird got me on the other side of the road on my way into Burleigh, then on my return home I decided to ride on the opposite side of the road, and even dismounted when I came up upon the same area. I spotted him high on a telegraph pole about 50m away, so I waited. He then flew all the way down to me as I stood still and swooped me! He then flew off and swooped two people across the road multiple times who were on a skateboard and walking (where he originally made contact with me). Very aggressive bird!
Injured:No

Very persistent bird that swooped from behind and slammed into the back of my helmet. Swooped a second time but made no contact. On my return home I decided to ride on the opposite side of the road, and even dismounted when I came up upon the same area. I spotted him high on a telegraph pole about 50m away, so I waited. He then flew all the way down to me as I stood still and swooped me! He then flew off and swooped two people across the road multiple times who were on a skateboard and walking (where he originally made contact with me). Very aggressive bird!
