Valuing a master of the skies
The Wedge-tail eagle is Western Australia’s largest bird of prey. This huge bird has a wingspan of up to 2.84 metres and soars with ease, circling at great heights.
Seeing one of these magnificent creatures in flight is awe-inspiring.
The widely distributed “Wedgie”, once persecuted as a pest, is now protected and it is illegal to harm these birds in any way. Unfortunately, they still have an uphill battle, due to habitat destruction, poisoning from baits, reduced numbers of rabbits, and road accidents.
