O, dear , you are there so soon. The eagles (we call them "wedgies") are very large birds. The dead wallaby was on the right-hand side of the road and the bird in flight had picked it up and dropped it, probably because it was also aware of my presence and was a bit nervous.

With warmth,

Ian

Beautiful picture of this very nice birds of prey Ian. The end of the Wallaby was not so beautiful. Greetings Berend

They weren't too keen on my being around, Berend - hence the one in flight has dropped the wallaby! I am sure you saw plenty of wedge-tailed eagles when you were touring this country.

Cheers,

Ian

We saw a lot of them Ian, but they are so shy that I haven't got a good picture of them, except in the Litchfield NP, Territory Wildlife Park. Greetings Berend

I am sure you saw them aplenty, Berend.
