Do you know what a magpie is?
This angry bird is not the iPhone, Android or Chrome apps. They are not huge but definitely by no means tiny. In spring time, these magpies are in attack mode if you get close to them in some areas in Sydney.
I was once chased by this species in a park and understood it was really something we need to be aware of in this season.
Magpies attack human if we get close to their nests.  The helmets of the bike riders also attract magpies because the shiny faces make magpies think they are in danger.
I always associate bird attacks with Alfred Hitchcock’s classic movie “The Birds” (1963); although I believe, those birds are not Australian magpies.
