When I worked at a fauna park on the gold coast we had a butcherbird that would 
only target boys of about 10 years old and that were wearing a blue cap.  The 
bird would hit from behind and literally pierce the ear (or at least do some 
good damage).

This happened on quite a few occasions that I know of that were reported so who 
knows how mant more happened.

However the specific nature of the targets does lend itself heavily to a bird 
that was 'targetted' itself by at least one small human in a blue hat.

Happy birding!!!!!
