There are eagles in this nest and have been for as long as I remember. This is at least 17 years.

Hi all.
For those of us who grew up in Canberra (in the 1960s) that westerly slope above what is now Erindale Drive was always a known nesting site for Wedgies. I am aware of an old eyrie in a large Scribbly Gum (or Brittle Gum) which is probably in excess of 30 years old, in roughly the area which Phillip has described. I have no idea if it has been used since that road was cut through the hillside there (probably back in the mid-1980s).
Highly unlikely to be active, I would think, but "never say never".
