Hello Scott.

Whilst on a bushwalking trip in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney some years
ago, I entered a clearing on Cedar Creek just above its confluence with the
Cox's River. A few metres ahead a large Wedgetail Eagle attempted to take to
the air carrying a largish object in its talons. However. the clearing was
not long enough for it to gain height and it was forced to drop its burden
in order to escape. Upon investigation, the object proved to be freshly
killed fox with blood still dripping from the neck , back and throat of the
victim. From the size of the creature I should say that it was an adult and
would imagine that it must have been a rather unusual set of circumstances
which allowed the Wedgetail to take a fully-grown fox.
