I had similar over my house last week with one WtE & (about 20) ScC. The Eagle was flying high from Mt Taylor direction towards Urambi Hills. So I can’t be sure of any connection. Two weeks ago a flock of ScC in close circling interaction with a female Brown Goshawk over my house. That time the 2 species were within a few metres of each other. I have no doubt that WtE often fly over my house. That I see this generally several times a year and that I don’t spend all day sky gazing in my yard, suggests I miss most such events.

Huge commotion among the local white cockies in Wanniassa just now as three Wedge-tailed Eagles flew over. Probably close to a hundred cockatoos in the air, plus a few ravens and magpies attempting to throw their weight around. Been a while since I've had an eagle in my GBS...
