Yesterday the news broke of a local woman having her hearing aid stolen in a magpie attack outside the Warrina complex.
Whilst 9 News North Queensland reporter Josh Bristow was on the scene the magpie couldn't resist showing it's true colours once again.
Magpiealert.com has recorded that already this swooping season, Queensland leads the pack with over 400 reported attacks.
Next is NSW with just over 300, while the Northern Territory hasn't tallied any.
The black and white culprit took a shot at Josh not once, but multiple times (and it looks like he has an ear fetish)
Watch the footage below closely and probably don't walk this stretch of Dalrymple Road any time soon.
