Compare the size of a crow and wedgie. Found him In a tree with his mate and 4 whistling kites all under attack of two crows. And as you can see in the second pic the crow is getting on the wedgies nerves by it not using its full wing span. View attachment 10339View attachment 10340
Just a quick fix as seen in post 17 by XT John he pictures a Tasmanian wedge. The Tasmanian wedge tail is the only different race and only appears in Tasmania it is Aquilia fleayl . The main difference is the adults retain the pale nape which is only seen in younger birds (aquilia audax) on main land
They are a Magnificent Bird - only just discovered this Thread - you do them proud with your wonderful Photographs thanks!!!
I live at "Mullion" which in the local Wiradjuri dialect means "Where Eagles Nest"
We see the birds often but I have only been fortunate enough to observe a breading pair one spring - and a lot of years ago now.
