Comments

Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia's largest bird of prey and one of the biggest eagles in the world. With an impressive wingspan of up to 2.5 metres , it can also be recognised from its long, powerful legs which are feathered all the way to the feet.
Wedge-tailed eagles can be observed across mainland Australia and Tasmania in a variety of habitats, from coastal to alpine regions. The birds favour lightly wooded country offering favourable nesting sites from which they have a clear view of their territory and ready access to prey including mammals such as rabbits and hares, as well as lizards, snakes and other birds.
