Australia's big waste problem Environment Why the government may ban single-use plastics 4. Zoologists have been called in to devise some means of defence but they have also suffered from the swift and silent enemy. Yes, from September to November each year in eastern Australia it is magpie madness time and few people, even children, are safe.
During nesting, you barely see the black-and-white flash as the magpie turns into a flying missile, swooping down on unsuspecting humans and delivering painful and often dangerous pecks.
A Brisbane newspaper once reported that at one school a fierce magpie had cut the faces of more than a hundred children. Throngs of screaming parents at the school gate were trying to get their terrified children to run quickly across the open spaces to the main building, where a doctor was waiting to provide first aid.
Nick Cilento is familiar with the Brisbane situation and has often been victimised by magpies himself. He decided to investigate their attacks for his honours thesis at Griffith University and spent six months before, during and after an entire magpie breeding season observing their attacks on other humans. Walking adults were rarely attacked but children were, with boys — the usual chuckers of rocks and sticks — in particular becoming prime targets, along with bicycle riders, joggers and posties.
Some birds seemed to pick their victims with great care; a woman pushing a pram could be attacked even while the magpie ignored boys pelting it with sticks. The attacking bird was typically a male bird, which usually glides silently down from an elevated position so as to approach the intruder from the rear. Sometimes the attack consists of a single swoop, but Cilento was once hit a dozen times on his helmet by the same bird as he pedalled through its territory.
Magpie attacks are always directed at the head. Their weapons of choice are a closed beak or open claws, or they bite and leave two fine cuts where the skin has been pinched and sliced. This sort of attack can stun and may cause serious bruising. They are obviously capable of recognising and attacking particular people, which adds credence to the belief in their cognitive abilities.
Unfortunately, aggressive magpies represent a serious human—wildlife conflict that is not easily reconciled:... 28 Jun During nesting, you barely see the black-and-white flash as the magpie A Brisbane newspaper once reported that at one school a fierce magpie and are vulnerable, which is when the female may become aggressive.” ..
