(I am being completely sarcastic, as I would [and have on occasion] rather get swooped & hit than continuously ride around with sprouting zip-ties from my helmet).
I must say, in defence of zip ties, that last year, I enjoyed peace of mind with them affixed to my helmet. The maggies, when they did swoop, tended to aim at the ends of the zip ties, and not at any other protuberances, e.g. my ears or nose. This also moved the swooping bird further away from my eyes, which is a good thing.
The critical thing in my opinion, is to always colour coordinate with the bicycle, or possibly with the lycra if wearing fully matching kit.
