Australian Magpies Are "Swooping" Again, So Cover Your Eyes


"Magpie Swooping" season is an unfortunate urban nature problem which many Australians suffer during September and October. The species of bird known as the magpie seem to become violently aggressive during this time of year and swoop down to try and gouge out people's eyeballs. Every year, scores of people are attacked and disfigured by the attacks and SCIENTISTS NOW BELIEVE THE BIRDS REMEMBER SPECIFIC HUMAN TARGETS YEAR AFTER YEAR AND ATTACK THEM MORE FREQUENTLY.
