You have not mentioned whether this is near the Butcherbird's nest. They can
be nasty in defence of the nest and young, just as their Magpie relatives
are. Although I have known Butcherbirds to be nasty in defence of their
dependent young also after leaving the nest, that Magpies don't. If possible
avoid the immediate vicinity of the nest during that time.

A friend who works as a GA in a school yard is having trouble with a vicious
Grey Butcherbird. It seems to be intent on attacking him even though he
wears a hat and long sleeves. He comes home bloodied each day. The attacks
also happened  last year but were not as ferocious. Does anyone have a
solution other than eliminating the bird?
