Audrey from Eden Park has shared these pictures of Wedge-Tailed Eagles she observed recently. Audrey says she has observed adult and juvenile birds in the same location on previous years eating rabbits. Great observation.
The Wedge-Tailed Eagle is Australia’s largest and most common bird of prey with a wingspan up to 2.3m. Rabbits usually comprise 30%-70% of their diet but they will also prey on other birds, reptiles and dead animals.
