I am not sure if this is of particular interest, but I just saw something that looked suspiciously like an adult WB Sea Eagle. But Erika, you say, was it not a Black-shouldered Kite? To this I say, Nay! It was the size of an eagle, and did not have the conspicuous black shoulder patch. Admittedly, I saw the bird perched in a large gum tree near a dam while driving, and as I was a passenger I could not demand that we stop.

Anywho, I'm not sure if they are uncommon in this area so I thought I would mention it. Maybe if anyone is in the area they can go check it out.

Shingle Hill Way on the right side of the road when heading away from Gundaroo, just before it joins the federal hwy. I saw it at about 4.30pm.
