World Bird Wednesday

Deep in thought?  Wedge-tailed Eagle (Aquila audax), at a wonderful bird sanctuary in Ballarat, Victoria (Australia).  It gave me a photograph opportunity I never could achieve otherwise. 


Go here to see more wonderful birds, and participate if you wish.

Thanks, Carole (with an e). You could have wished a wish so you might win a prize.

Hehehe, in Filipino, we call this bird AGUILA, very similar to its "scientific" name, if you may call it.

Hi there - I think it’s only when you see them like this that you get a sense of how big they really are! Nice picture.
