The Little Eagle was seen from about 9am when it was being harassed by Noisy Miners in a Ecalyptus Tree. Through the binoculars we can see that it has feathers on its legs down to its feet.

Mon 29Little Eagle, Crested Pigeon
Hoppers Crossing
Whilst having lunch at Mossfiel Reserve, we saw a dark morph Little Eagle fly in. Without warning, it stooped all the way to the ground, catching a Crested Pigeon that hadn't bothered to fly off, like its fellow pigeons had. It took it to a nearby eucalypt, allowing close views. This park is very urban and quite a few people were in the area, which didn't seem to bother the eagle. eBird checklist
