Magpie attack on Walker - 63A New South Head Road, Vaucluse NSW 2030
First time I heard of this (or rather was faced by it) - a bird took off from the sidewalk seemingly flying past my head, and then went straight for my eye with its beak! Completely unprovoked and without any young ones visible around - ended up having a bleeding eyelid. These should be actively protected against by the council!
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 20 Percival Street, Maroubra NSW 2035
Test driving my daughter's new bike turned into Percival from Snape Street, completely oblivious to anything around me. Suddenly I feel this thud on my left ear. It stopped me and I jumped off the bike to turn around to see what it could possibly be. A magpie was checking me out. Cycled home rubbing my ear to notice that it was bleeding. It now is tender and bruised. My daughter then went with my husband and was attacked on the opposite side of the park in Hannan Street. Luckily she was wearing a helmet and was NOT injured.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 254 Windsor Road, Vineyard NSW 2765
While returning from a ride to Windsor from Baulkham Hills, I came across a very aggressive magpie at this point. Whereas, normally, I've known magpies to hit the shiny part of the helmet on top, this one tried to attack even from side! Normally they swoop, go up & come back again, but this one kept kept at my helmet. In the process of evading it, I fell down & suffered heavy bruises on my left arm & legs...broke my Nexus 5 I use for tracking my ride.

Magpie attack on Walker - 57 The Parkway, Patterson Lakes VIC 3197
My daughter was walking home from school and not far from our home. Not under a tree but near a palm tree where they must be nesting. Came from behind and took a chunk our of her neck behind her ear. Nasty.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Cotter Road, Canberra ACT 2611
This magpie has a rap sheet a mile long with many grevious bodily harm incidents - after multiple contacts leading to bleeding scratches on the back and ear - this (murderous) magpie is not afraid of anything. Should have known better than to ride this path, although it was very late in the season.
Injured:Yes
