Magpie attack on Cyclist - 20-28 Blackall St, Barton ACT 2600
These guys have made contact. Over the last three months I have been constantly attacked by a very aggressive magpie. In the last week there are now two of them, they take turns to swoop from multiple directions over a stretch of a hundred metres.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 41 Blackall St, Barton ACT 2600
Saw a currawong swoop a cyclist about 5 times over a distance of about 8 metres. I saw this bird attack people at least once a week in Spring. I was hoping it would have stopped by now.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Bicentennial National Trail, North West Rural Canberra ACT
Swooped once from behind, after which time I got off my bike and walked while keeping my eye on the bird who looked keen to have another go. After witnessing other cyclists being swooped in this spot back in early September from my car, I had hoped the swooping would have stopped by now but not the case.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Bicentennial National Trail, North West Rural Canberra ACT
A small-ish maggie looked at me while he was on the path pecking away at something with a companion/young one. It got out of the way as I cycled past then I could immediately sense that it was going to attack me. No surprise when it started swooping me, 3~4 times. Some contact with helmet but no pecking of ears thankfully.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 50 Du Faur St, Mawson ACT 2607
Heading South this morning, as I have many a day and never had a problem. Today this bird took exception to me for whatever reason. I heard the squawk behind me, and I guess it came after my left ear, because I felt it brush against that shoulder, but it didn't make contact with my helmet or any part of my head.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 84 Emu Bank, Belconnen ACT 2617
swooped twice while riding my bike near the Belconnen Arts Centre. This is one aggressive bird. I got hit twice near my left ear. Later in the day while sitting in my car at the traffic lights I witnessed this bird swooping three other cyclists. Pecking their helmets and ears. Looks like a currawong.
Injured:Yes
