These photos leave much to be desired in many respects, however, I was trying out my new camera and tripod in some local wetlands and suddenly saw what appeared to be an eagle. Am wondering whether one of our many bird watchers might be able to assist in identifying it and perhaps even explain what the eagle might have been doing?
(I have this impression that eagles build their aeries on high, not on the ground).
Wedge-tailed eagles are fairly common here in South Australia - could this be one?
This next shot gives an idea of the bird's wingspan.
(I'll aim to get better shots, given the opportunity, in future, but meantime hope someone has the patience and interest to help out with an ID!)
