Magpie attack on Cyclist - Cotter Road, Canberra ACT 2611
Going downhill, went straight for my right ear from the side without the usual beak/wing warning. It was so silent that a ninja would have been ashamed. I covered my right ear then it went for my left ear, drawing blood on both ears. Chased and pecked me for about 200 metres. Will be avoiding this route. It seems to have developed a taste for human flesh.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Athllon Drive, Torrens ACT 2607
Terror bird swooped at me from the side and clipped my glasses. Birdie waits on the light pole by the bus stop and then dives for me (but skips other cyclists). Scary as hell!! Finding a new way home.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Parkes Way, Canberra ACT
A magpie swooped once and made contact with the top of my helmet as I was cycling east along Parkes Way. I continued riding with my head turned and watched it hovering above me, but it didn't attack again.
Injured:No

Aggressive one that came from behind quietly, went for both of my ears (drawing blood), helmet, then backpack. Persistent - followed me for about 200m. It was here last year too.

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Cotter Road, Weston Creek ACT 2611
Same bird as the others on this strip presumably. Came from the trees on the left heading out towards cotter. Result: cut and bleending ear. He and two others attacked me on the way back also. I would avoid this road for the next six weeks especially if riding alone...
Injured:Yes
