A couple of different eagles have been observed on the river roost and in the forest area.
One is a younger bird and the other a little older.
They use their prehensile tails to attach to seagrass while searching for prey, consisting mostly of planktonic crustaceans.
The adults continue to be seen on their favourite river roost.Less than two weeks to go to expected hatch date(s). At night, the female gets up for a stretch and to turn the eggs every 40-60 minutes.The male has been roosting close by; ether behind the nest, above the nest or on a nearby tree. The ensuing "midnight duets" can probably be heard for miles around! The male brought a very large fish in during the day. Last evening, in the rain and wind, our new female laid an egg.Several people have seen them soaring high over the river, calling together and spiralling higher and higher. The older female seems to have moved in to our male's territory.Several times today, both have been seen on nest 3 (the nest used last year).
