I asked Jerry Olsen about the Little Eagle that Leo sent a photo of, and
got this reply. I also received a cute photo of a hand held Pygmy Owl
(certainly is small) but as it is 1MB, I won't pass it on.

Thanks Phillip

we are in Finland at the moment, banded Pygmy Owls this week, (attached,
put it on the COG site if you want) so can't do anything for a while. It
may not be hurting the bird yet, and looks as though it is in a good
place for the eagle to preen out the piece. It looks almost like a
mis-attached patagial wing tag, but nobody should be using those in the
ACT. Have them check to see if the bird is banded.

Let us know what happens.

 <> Hello Jerry,
Would you have any suggestions on this? The hard part of course is
catching the bird safely.

I observed this at the Jerrabomberra Wetlands today and noticed that it
had what looked like a piece of wire either attached or caught up under
one wing.
Any suggestions?
