Magpie attack on Cyclist - Level 1/29 Torrens St, Braddon ACT 2612
One magpie swooped at me three times when i was riding my bike north along the footpath on Torrens Street. The first time it's beak hit my helmet. The second and third time I turned and yelled and swore at it and it swooped just above me.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 15 Lennox Crossing, Acton ACT 2601
I got swooped quite aggressively five times along here -- like everybody else!! I now avoid the area by cutting through ANU. This magpie is pretty full on. Clopped against my helmet multiple times, sometimes sideways -- I managed to stay on the bike (I wasn't going that fast) and he didn't peck me. Definitely an area to avoid!
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 42 Marine Parade, Southport QLD 4215
My 4 children and I were swooped and my son and daughters helmets were targeted as we left Australia Fair - we actually crossed from the Broadwater parklands as the kids were also attacked there

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Belconnen Way, Belconnen ACT 2617
This is one of my frequently travelled routes, so I have had multiple swoops by this bird. The first time it happened in mid September, I was carrying 25kg of groceries and he dropped me. He is a helmet whacker, but cable ties have helped. He is amenable to kitten kibble, I consider it my toll for passing relatively unmolested.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - Burwood Rd at Comer St, Burwood NSW 2134
The thing attacked my head from nowhere, ive never been attacked before, or even heard about this! It tried another 2 or 3 times, which I swatted away, so didnt get that close again. It stopped when I was by the bus stop, presumably because the swooping angle was blocked.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 33 Hope Valley Rd, Naval Base WA 6165
Bad one - I was on my bike just about made it to work, and there were 2 magpies on the electrical lines, one wouldn't stop swooping me very aggressively. I got off my bike to walk but it kept at me. Left me alone once I finally made it to the main road.
Injured:No
