Do Maggies swoop at sunset or at night?

By

I'm prepared to do more night riding if it means avoiding those testosterone-infused dive bombers. Has anyone out there been swooped at night? I'm a 55-year-old man who still has episodes of being curled up in the fetal position in the shower remembering an attack when I was 10yo. It was like an attack from the movie 'Birds'.

I hate those rotten magpies so much. I live in fear and nobody understands me!! It’s nice to have magpiephobic friends out there !

I also ride, of a night time, past the bird that swoops me of a daytime, and have not been attacked.

Hi Tony, I'm a bit like you, bad memories due to injuries sustained in an attack years ago. I often wear a motorbike helmet, which is great, because they can come at you all they want and they don't hurt you (interestingly this has really helped reduce my fear when I'm attacked without the helmet now). Anyway, to answer your question, I have never been attacked at night and I used to ride regularly at night past a bird that would always attack me during the day.
