To soar over mountains and valleys,
To rise majestically
On thermal currents
Over a patchwork quilt

The Wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey with a wingspan of up to 2.8m (about 10 feet). They are found all over Australia where suitable habitat exists. You can read more about Australian birds on my site Trevor’s Birding.
