Have you ever been attacked by an Australian Magpie? They are very defensive of their territory and have been known to follow the people riding a bike.

No, but I have seen them following people on bike. Scary !
Australian magpies look a lot meaner than our ones.
LOL, you made me laugh !

Why? What did I say? I didn't mean it to be funny, but reading it again, I can see it does sound a bit amusing.
Because I just imagined them with mean animated looks :) I imagine things a lot !

No I haven't. But I do take care to avoid areas where magpies are known to nest and keep an eye out for them.
Yes - when I went cycling. I scared it away with my water bottle but prefer not to experience that again!
No but I've heard stories ha
No, I've never been attacked by this specie of bird. These birds are not native to my country.
Funny you should ask this question. Was attacked this weekend at a picnic spot.
Hope you didn't get hurt !

No, but my son has. He had to wear a bike helmet with cable ties sticking out of it.
No, but I have a family of them in the back yard, probably the 5th or 6th generation. They are friendly and cheeky, stealing cat biscuits (literally walking in the back door) and the cats know not to approach them!
When they have young they bring them to visit too!

Have been swooped upon just walking on the footpath, during their nesting season, beaks are sharp!
