Magpie attack on Person - 20 Hibiscus Haven, Burleigh Heads QLD 4220


I was attacked in the eye by a Magpie-Lark inside the cafe "Paddock Bakery" on the Gold Coast. I went to the cafe with my husband to celebrate our first baby's 12 weeks ultrasound we did a few minutes before. Seconds before my attack, the same bird attacked another guy also in the eye. We were in the outside area of the cafe, close to the main entrance. After the attacks, one of the employees said it was not the first time, and they already contacted the council. They also said that they have warning signs in the cafe about the birds but didn't see any. I posted what happened to me in a Brazilian Facebook group, and a girl sent me a picture of her boyfriend who was attacked at the same cafe.

Oh my gosh are you alright? What about your husband and your unborn. I hope it wasn't too stressful for you all. All the best.

A magpie-lark is not a magpie. Completely different species. And, not surprisingly not only isn't it a magpie, its also not a lark. Its only similarity to a magpie is that its "pied", ie, black and white.
