Magpie attack on Cyclist - 61 Furlong Road, Cairnlea VIC 3023
Red wattlebird - This bird has been increasingly more of a nuisance for the past fortnight. Started off with one swoop over about 20 metres miles above my head, today it swooped about four times over 200 metres, just touching my ear as it went past.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 57 The Parkway, Patterson Lakes VIC 3197
My daughter was walking home from school and not far from our home. Not under a tree but near a palm tree where they must be nesting. Came from behind and took a chunk our of her neck behind her ear. Nasty.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Tan Track, Melbourne VIC 3004
Already recorded by another person but this same magpie actually bounced off my helmet last week. Continues to swoop in the afternoons - not seen in this area on the commute to work in the morning. Beware.

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 7 Memorial Drive, Swan Hill VIC 3585
Swooped twice - once each time I rode along this road. Same magpie, followed me for about 500m until I got off my bike and walked - and another magpie got fired up and attacked the first magpie. Altogether a scary but somewhat interesting experience.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Tan Track, Melbourne VIC 3004
Have been swooped by the same magpie every day for the past couple of weeks while cycling from Alexandra Ave to St Kilda Road (or vice versa) along Linlithgow Ave. This is getting personal! She 'clicks' and attacks but has not made contact (yet). I usually cycle flat out until she gives up.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 89 Rachelle Road, Keilor East VIC 3033
Well there I was just minding my own business and this **** started swooping the shit out of me. I tried to run under a tree to get away from it but the **** followed me under there. I was left traumatized and in need of a new pair of undies.
Injured:No

Was riding my bike when it swooped me 4 times, each time hitting my helmet. On the 4th time it got me off balance and I took a fall landing on my elbow and hip. Whilst I was down it continued to attack. Ended up with a cut on the jaw (from the helmet strap), a bruised hip and bruised ego :(
Injured:Yes
