Very persistent bird this one! Swooped EVERYONE that was walking or cycling along the footpath on the highway alongside the oval for Miami High. Didn't make much contact that I saw, and no contact was made with me either, but gave me a fright!
This little bugger chased me for 300m and was attacking my Temporomandibular joint. Lucky I was wearing my sport earphones and got away with minimal bleeding and a few scratches.
The magpie swooped the cyclist in front of me from behind as we were cycling up the hill on Macrossan St near Hume St. Although the magpie made a determined attack, the cyclist had too much momentum for the bird to make contact. Fortunately the magpie was too busy pulling out of the attack to go for me.
A Magpie catapulted its body from a tree, into the back of my head, while I was walking to the train station and thinking about the Magpie who swooped me from the ground in the city yesterday. It made my head bleed and I had to seek first aid assistance from the train station attendant. Great start to the day. Cheers Magpie.
A Magpie was standing on the ground and it stopped, looked me in the eye with a menacing look and we had a bit of a standoff. I stepped to get onto the bus and the Magpie took a swoop at my head. It missed though, so I still win.
