Ever been swooped by a magpie? If yes, I got some bad news for you. These birds recognise and remember faces and know where you live!!! Seems the facial recognation is so that can seek out the same person and attack them over and over and over again, especially if they live nearby. The birds are territorial and can live in the same area for over 20 years. They learn to know who lives where and will watch for who THEY think are a threat then ….kapow!
