The Magpie. A bird that terrorises the bike riders in Brisbane. During the Spring when the chicks are in the nests they attack anything that approaches and because they aim at the head and eyes are very dangerous, specially for kids..
I have been atacked twice. One when I was taking pictures in the bush and because I did not have the safety helmet I got a very deep gash in my head. The other I was riding a bike and with the safety helmet on it was only the fright of being hit without expecting it.
