Magpie came from the tree above and smashed my eyeball. Just caught me and my eye is all red now.
I was simply standing under the tree with no intention of harm, worst experience of my life at the moment.
Decided to have a shower straight away to clean my eye out but I'm not sure if I am still at risk? Do I need eye drops?
Attacked my right eye had to go to hospital
Nearly lost my sight lucky the LITTEL shit
Got the white part of my eye with a 6mm hole
In my eye .
Third time I've been attacked , it's one male bird
He is the recarnation of satan and he attacks everyone .
This has been the fourth time that the magpie, nested on the trees on the edge of the Maribyrnong Reserve, attacked me. The difference this time was that there were two of them- the other one looked like a junior. They coordinated really well!
I thought the swooping season had ended a long time ago. Apparently I was wrong.
I love Australian Magpies, unfortunately this family hates me.
When for a cycle after dinner, family was walking on foot a short distance behind. Magpie started swooping and I rode ahead. Total of 3 swoops. No injury suffered.
Family took a detour onto a different road
I was walking slowly towards the tram stop when the magpie swooped and attacked my eyes , it all happened so fast! I got a few scratches with blood oozing out. My roommate was attacked in the same way and was injured too, she got attacked a day before me , at the same spot. Just beside the subway located at the junction between union street and queen st Kilda road.
I was walking my dog in a park and as I let my dog off her lead a magpie came down from the tree and swooped her, trying to grab her harness. Luckily she did a death roll and avoided being injured by the magpie.
I was cycling down Powell Street (Hoppers Crossing VIC 3029) when I heard a close bird sound behind me. I looked up and saw a Magpie following me on a 1 meter distant. It was trying to get to me. I panicked and waved with my hand. It kept the bird away for a second and then it came back. A car passed me and saw me struggling. He or she tried to help me by honking the car. This also helped for a few seconds. Eventually I sheltered under a tree on the other side of the road, waited for a few seconds and then cycled as hard as I could back home. The bird left me alone after a few meters.
