It's springtime, which often means magpie swooping in outdoor areas such as parks, reserves & neighbourhoods.

Swooping is a maggies protective behaviour at breeding time, keeping potential threats away from their nest with eggs or chicks inside.

Here are some tips that could help minimise your risk of being swooped:
• Walk quickly but don't run
• Hold umbrella/ wear a hat or helmet
• Keep eyes safe (sunglasses)
• Face the magpie as you move away
• Dismount your bike if riding
• Move groups (magpies are more likely to target individuals)
• Don't disturb or hassle birds
