Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) on Flickr.
One of the more medium sized raptors to be found in eastern Australia, the Brahminy Kite is also a bird of prey that can fish!
White-bellied fish eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) is a huge powerful raptor that preys on anything from small mammals, birds, fish and snakes. This is one of Australia’s biggest birds of prey, second only to the Wedge-tail Eagle.
The Wedge-tail Eagles (Aquila audax) are Australia’s largest raptor, with a 2.5m wingspan and a diamond shaped tail they are unmistakable in flight and with talons bigger than my hands they can take prey up to the size of lambs or foxes…..seriously impressive bird!
