...in Melbourne anyway.
were from successful
from an irate springtime magpie.
they're such a common problem there's even a google map of where known swoopers live.
you can see the magpie's beak was slightly open
when it hit.
actually I think those are two hits close to each other
one very shallow and the other much deeper.
even scarier than the fact I was riding on a busy arterial road at the time
scary arterial road in question. note complete lack of even pretend bike lanes
is that the trajectory of the attack
meant the maggie would have pierced my temple
thanks be to helment.
