You can't go far in Australia without magpies being a nuisance. This sign has been altered though as it seems there are more mudlarks than magpies to swoop people. Being swooped by a magpie feels like a jumbo flying close and then missing. It can be quite scary especially if they return for a second swoop. Some people have painted eyes onto their helmets to scare the magpies away.
