Majestic Creatures of the Sky

We live at the bottom of a huge big granite hill – well, not big compared to NSW, Vic and Tassie standards, but pretty high for around here. Most of this country is gently undulating.

Anyway, back to the story. This granite hill is covered in thick native bush, poking out inbetween the granite. and is home to an amazing array of wildlife and flora.

Every evening we watch two majestic Wedgetail Eagles fly low over the hill, looking for prey. Mostly they stay well away from the house, but recently have come closer and enabled me to get this shot.

Wedgies really aren’t farmers friends since they’ve been known to take lambs, chooks and so forth, but there is no denying their power and magnificence as these creatures soar so effortlessly.
