I was attacked by a Grey Butcherbird in late September in a suburban street on 
the Gold Coast, Queensland, on my walking route to work. It had swooped me on 
two mornings about three weeks earlier, so I had changed to walking down the 
other side of the road, where there is no footpath. After two weeks had elapsed 
and I had not seen the bird again, I assumed it had moved elsewhere and went 
back to walking down the footpath side. I did not see or hear the bird coming 
at all and it landed a blow just above my right ear. No blood but a good 
bruise. I was also wondering whether this was common behaviour.
