Attacked multiple times. Suspiciously, the bird made none of the typical vocalisations or beak snaps. It aimed at the ear and neck area (going for the kill no doubt), subsequently hitting the target on multiple occasions - drawing plenty of blood (like a pro).
This is the most aggressive magpie I've struck, and the most adept at hitting its target.
I can only conclude that this one is either evil, or a trained assassin, genetically modified in one of those Russian or Chinese military labs;). We may never know!!!
