I was out riding today, and got swooped twice by magpies. I love magpies, but they unfailingly scare the hell out of me when they do that.
I know the swooping only happens at the beginning of Spring, and I’m ready for it. But I know some aren’t. So I started a map to locate swoop zones for unsuspecting cyclists. Forewarned is forearmed, they say.

I’d like to crowdsource this into a bigger resource. If you know of a magpie swoop zone, leave details in the comments and I’ll add them to the map.
