Magpie attack on Cyclist - 1 Connors St, Graceville QLD 4075
Swooped numerous times while riding along the Ixley road end of Connors Street. The magpie or butcher bird couldn’t quite tell, mostly going for the ears on either side of my helmet. Managed to keep my elbows up to deflect the bird.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 140 Sibley Rd, Wynnum West QLD 4178
Was walking along Sibley Road when a magpie swooped me 4 times. Was wearing a hat at the time and fortunately it hit the button on the top of my hat. Continued walking and heard it coming again and was able to duck so wasn't hit. Kept a watch on it as after the swoops it sat on the power lines. To keep a watch as I continued my walk had to walk backwards when it came at me a third time waved my arms and it cancelled my attack, I did this a second time afterwards I must of left its area as it flew off.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 4 Satinay St, Keperra QLD 4054
This magpie was quite polite compared to most I've met. It simply tapped a couple of times on the back of my helmet as I was riding along. I thought it was a loose strap flapping on my backpack and when I turned my head to the left, the pesky thing was THERE, flying right by my left shoulder. It gave me a verbal warning of sorts and flew off up to the roadside pylons. Probably the most pleasant encounter I've had - I wish they were all like this.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 537 Royal Esplanade, Manly QLD 4179
I’ve been swooped quite a few times riding through here in the past two weeks. Thought it was worth reporting because this afternoon the bird (i think it might be a Butcher Bird) smacked the back of my bicycle helmet. I jumped off my bike and the bird had another go at me but I just waved an arm and it stopped but kept a close eye on me from the power line. Haven’t seen it attack anyone walking as yet but still worth being aware. It nests across the road because I’ve seen it come from and return there after swooping.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Dog Walker - 1 Benelong St, Kedron QLD 4031
Swooped straight past me next to my shoulder to make contact with a man walking on the road in the opposite direction to me. He was wearing sunnies and a cap. I was wearing a cap and walking 2 dogs.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 8 Currawinya St, North Lakes QLD 4509
Riding along Discovery, I was swooped by two birds working together, one bird hit my right shoulder with its wing, and one managed to strike the left side of my neck under my helmet with its beak. A minor puncture wound but not too serious.
Injured:Yes
