help! why do magpies insist on targeting me ??? :? :? i have a magpie which nests in the trees in my frontyard.. it pecks on me ( ) all the time at first it was amusing then it becomes frustrating when you go outside hungover to pick up the paper, etc.... its not fun when youre seedy and youre reaction time is down.. its pretty cool though when a magpie swoops you headon and hits your visor.. its like headbutting a bird lol this bird will follow me down the road hanging of my shoulder pecking my helmet!! its not only embarrasing.. but awkward,, specially when youre trying to turn around a roundabout .... any suggestions ? or experiences ?
