I saw a classic example of this today - as I was walking onto the campus this morning I heard a magpie/butcherbird war cry behind me. I thought I was going to be swooped, but when I turned around I could see a maggie harassing a school boy on a bike. This was consistent with previous observations where the pies leave me alone but go for kids on bikes and skates.

Regards, Laurie.
