Dear Magpies,

I am writing to you and all your families to please venture to another state or at least suburb so I can start walking again. I really miss it and my poor dog is so upset because I wont take her for our daily walk

Everytime I go outside I am fearful for my life and I pled to you to please move on.

My body needs to you

Yours sincerly

JeZ

:lol: god I crack myself up

Generally magpies swoop because they arent used to you in their territory. theyre a bird with great memory because once they consider you not a threat (they remember you walking past everyday and not doing anything to their babies) then they stop swooping. I usually stare them out as i walk past them and they don't do it. We get heaps around my area, there's a family of them in a tree on my lawn they'll actually let us walk around the yard when theyre training their babies and stuff because they remember us, and our usual commings and goings. quite amazing really :)

LOL, don't wear Yellow........ or is that Red. I've heard theyre attracted to certain colours. My brother is a red head, and my neices and nephew are red heads and the maggies go for them all the time.

Im with Sas the plovers attack me :( My dog did chase them once and he may have got one of their babies so I don't blame them BUT still they freak me out! The maggies around here have never attacked me or the kids I think they are just used to us :)

lol Jez. Sometimes when I can see them up in the trees near me I wave my hands around my head cause i'm scared they might swoop! I must look like i'm crazy!

I try to make it look like I'm just smoothing my hair or tightening my hair tie but I don't think it lookes that way to passers by lol
