Magpies are ubiquitous in urban areas all over Australia, and have become accustomed to people. A small percentage of birds become highly aggressive during breeding season from late August to early - mid October, and will swoop and sometimes attack passersby.
Attacks begin as the eggs hatch, increase in frequency and severity as the chicks grow, and tail off as the chicks leave the nest. Magpies may engage in an escalating series of behaviours to drive off intruders.
Least threatening are alarm calls and distant swoops, where birds fly within several metres from behind and perch nearby. Next in intensity are close swoops, where a magpie will swoop in from behind or the side and audibly "snap" their beaks or even peck or bite at the face, neck, ears or eyes.
Magpie attacks can cause injuries, typically wounds to the head,  and being unexpectedly swooped while cycling can result in loss of control of the bicycle, which may cause injury.
Magpies prefer to swoop at the back of the head; therefore, keeping the magpie in sight at all times can discourage the bird.
A basic disguise such as sunglasses worn on the back of the head may fool the magpie as to where a person is looking. Eyes painted on hats or helmets will deter attacks on pedestrians but not cyclists.
Cyclists can deter attack by attaching a long pole with a flag to a bike,  and the use of cable ties on helmets has become common and appears to be effective.
Magpies are a protected native species in Australia, so it is illegal to kill or harm them. However, this protection is removed in some Australian states if a magpie attacks a human, allowing for the bird to be killed if it is considered particularly aggressive such a provision is made, for example, in section 54 of the South Australian National Parks and Wildlife Act.
Some claim that swooping can be prevented by hand-feeding magpies. Magpies will become accustomed to being fed by humans, and although they are wild, will return to the same place looking for handouts.
The idea is that humans thereby appear less of a threat to the nesting birds. Although this has not been studied systematically, there are reports of its success.
The Australian magpie featured in aboriginal folklore around Australia. The Yindjibarndi people of the Pilbara in the northwest of the country used the bird as a signal for sunrise, frightening them awake with its call.
They were also familiar with its highly territorial nature, and it features in a song in their Burndud , or songs of customs. Under the name piping shrike , the white-backed magpie was declared the official emblem of the Government of South Australia in by Governor Tennyson ,  and has featured on the South Australian flag since The Collingwood Football Club adopted the magpie from a visiting South Australian representative team in Disputes over who has been the first club to adopt the magpie emblem have been heated at times.
