Swimmin’ Eagles…

Today whilst trying to film White-eared Monarchs on a gorgeous Queensland winters-day near Dayboro I noticed a couple of large birds passing overhead, to my astonishment a pair of Wedge-tailed Eagles fell out of the sky and landed in the middle of a pond, they were talon-grappling and must have been unaware of the water beneath them, a third bird then arrived and joined them, two flying-off and the younger bird flew to a tree to dry-off.

I managed to get some film most of the event though there was so much happening the quality is pretty poor, I also managed to get a couple of ‘stills’ whilst they were on the bank drying-out.
