    Same

    We also have two pairs of magpies that nest on opposite sides of the property from each other. I feed them at my back door during nesting season and they have never swooped us. They know I am not a threat. They now come up and tap on the door if I am not up early enough. This year they have been super successful. They both abandoned the first clutch of babies they had in our yard as we have no dogs only two magpie fearing cats. Both pairs went on to have a second clutch of babies this season. Awwwww. I love seeing the babies have a bath in the big tray of water I have out near our back door. They are so cute.

    I like lorikeets like the ones in my tree out the front. Cassowaries freak me out. They are too much like velociraptors.

    Okay... I don't like, run screaming when I see a bird, but it one is flying at me I will move away exceptionally fast.

    I also do not like seagulls. They are cute looking, but they come right up to you for chips. That's not normal.

    Lol.

    Don't get me wrong, if I saw a hurt bird I would help it - I have saved an owl off our street that was hit by a car...

    I guess my issue with birds is when they want to be near me and when they intentionally fly at me just to pee me off!!! It's like they know - and inside they are laughing at me!!!!

    Just to be clear - I LOVE PUFFINS! They are so cute I just want to cuddle them.

    Perhaps it's because I have never even seen a puffin in real life. Lol

    I have a tendency to kill pet birds. Or my Mum does anyway. We went through 5 in a year and they all appeared to kill themselves. No more pet birds for us.

    Mum has however managed to "keep" the wild magpies every year. They attack everyone except for Mum and the rest of our family.

    I'm fine with birds from a distance or standing or walking close. Swooping etc within two meters is a no-no.
