I am not certain how typical. I have been bitten in the face by a Pied
Butcherbird when I approached close to recently fledged young. So in
combination with the closely related Magpie and Pied Currawong that can
do the same (although I've not known Currawongs to make contact when
attacking), it is not so surprising. You have not mentioned about
whether it has a nest nearby.

A Grey Butcherbird is attacking people in North Buderim. It is going for
their faces. 
It scored me with a nose hit today. Is this common behaviour for these
