I've never been attacked, but as a previous poster said, Turkey Buzzards get curious once in a while. Once they figure out the plane is not a threat, or something to eat, they lose interest.

Once a group of about seven were riding thermals circling near our field, they drifted over the field as I was flying a HZ Super Cub with a key fob cam on board. I was trying to fly generally in the same pattern as the birds, not chasing or interfering with them, and one came up from behind my plane and flew directly in front of it. It didn't seem interested after the flyby.

After a few minutes their group continued to drift away from our field.
