That’s great Chris.  Notches, splits and breaks in primary feathers seem to be one of the simplest and best marks for distinguishing individuals.  If only plumage marks were permanent!  Here is another example photographed this week along the Barton Hwy in NSW.

Hi, for those interested in following Little Eagles the image below posted to Canberra Nature Map could be of interest. The photo was taken today at Red Hill Nature Reserve. The primary on the other wing does not have the same mark.
