When trying to avoid swooping magpies in Australia, there is one technique that definitely doesn't work.

Apparently, magpies are a big problem in Australia. They swoop down and peck you in the head which makes them very aggressive birds.

Well, one morning show in Victoria decided that they were going to find a way to keep magpies from buzzing their heads. The first attempt was to put branches in the helmet. Surprisingly it worked fairly well. One magpie thought about it and then bailed.

As for technique number two... It definitely did not work. Watch and enjoy.
