I did my often done short walk on the western side of Mt Taylor off Colquhoun st. At the dam just as the track turns upwards a Wedge-tailed Eagle flew past me very low. Another Wedge-tailed Eagle was perched on the small tree just before the dam, only about 3 metres off the ground. I got quite close, very likely closer than I have ever been to 2 wild eagles. It flew off as I got to about 10 metres and three kangaroos that were at the dam fled the scene. There was an Australasian Grebe in the dam. Not the first time I have seen that. I have often seen two Wedge-tailed Eagles flying high over the site. 
Today at home my two Aust Ravens were high in the big tree. One looked like it was eating a bird and feathers were floating down. When I looked with binoculars it was clear that it was picking at the wing of a magpie. Rather meagre pickings and did not appear to be fresh.
Hardly important obs but might be sort of useful.
