Magpie attack on Cyclist - 12 Sharleen Ct, Bella Vista NSW 2153
Highly aggressive, and late in the season. It picked me out as I rode across the bridge, and then swooped multiple times as I continued northward on the east side, making contact with my helmet each time.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Runner - 11 Camden Gardens, North Turramurra NSW 2074
I was running on a fire track that connects St Ives Chase to North Turramurra and out of nowhere was attacked, presumably by a swooping magpie that I never saw. I received multiple lacerations on my face and head, the primary cut just above my right eyebrow.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 136 Acacia Rd, Kirrawee NSW 2232
My wife told me how the magpie and its offspring were both swooping my son in the backyard and walking to the park it sounded as if the adult was teaching the offspring how to swoop using a toddler as target practice. She said the sound of the birds pecking the helmet terrified her. It seems to pick it’s times and places as I haven’t been swooped for ages and it doesn’t ever swoop in the yard usually
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 25 Jasper St, Greystanes NSW 2145
Magpie would fly towards me then come straight down at me. I ducked behind my pram and it hit the pram at least twice. It wouldn’t give up and followed me for about 50m.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 4 Badgally Rd, Campbelltown NSW 2560
This was a real mother of a bird! Six, maybe seven swoops from in front and behind. All made contact and several with my glasses which were almost knocked off on one occasion. Probably the worst encounter I've ever had. I'd encountered, what I now assume to be, the same bird many weeks ago but on the other side of the road and coming downhill. On this occasion I was heading uphill and it was bit closer to Blaxland Road. Whatever the true situation it seems Badgally Road could be a no go from late August until late November.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 66 Prestige Ave, Bella Vista NSW 2153
Magpie hit me on the ear, lucky I was turning the other way and it didn't cut me, still hurt. Stopped and it kept attacking me, even when I had a stick raised above my head it was still swooping at my body.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 24 Aldan Pl, St Clair NSW 2759
Early morning walk down Aldan Pl St Clair when swooped 3 times by Magpie. No injuries but a lot of snapping with its beak and flapping of wings. This nesting season has started early in our area. August/September and still going now in mid November.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 3P Marine Parade, Maroubra NSW 2035
Magpie swooped at me and I felt it claws into the back of my head/neck. Sore where swooped at me!! Tried to swoop again but I went opposite direction. Chose me over four others in front of me. Baby in pram.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 71 Prestige Ave, Bella Vista NSW 2153
Riding along the cycle path towards Parramatta alongside Old Windsor Rd. Was heading towards the cross over walk/cycleway to cross to the other side of Old Windsor Rd towards the M7 Cycleway starting point. This Magpie swooped from behind and clipped heavily on my ear. I kept riding for about 100m with this bugger swooping and me swinging my arm to scare him off. He persisted. I do have some cable ties and a light mount on my helmet but they didn't seem to scare him off. No accident occurred.
Injured:No
