Magpie swooping advice

Hi brains trust, Bill here

My sister is a crossing guard at a primary school in the mornings in Melbourne.

She’s just moved to a new crossing, and apparently there’s a very swoopy Magpie there that terrorises the kids in Soring.

Swooping season is coming up and my sister was wondering if it might be worth trying to make friends with the Magpie.

She’s proposing putting a plate of worms from her worm farm each morning of the next school holidays in an attempt to get the local Magpies to recognise her as “not a threat”.

Do people think this might work? It sounds a possibility to me.
