Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

Hop off your bike and walk past a mag­pie’s nest. Change your route for the next six weeks if pos­si­ble. At­tach a flag to the back of your bike which is higher than your head level. Stick a pair of printable eyes on the back of your hel­met. (If the mag­pie has seen this be­fore, it may not de­ter it, as they can learn the dif­fer­ence be­tween real and fake eyes). Fas­ten plas­tic ca­ble ties echidna-style to your hel­met to try and pre­vent them from get­ting at your head.

Res­i­dents should be aware as it is peak mag­pie swoop­ing sea­son.
