     Hello everyone
     At noon Tuesday 17 March I saw a White-bellied Sea Eagle flying north 
     over the southern part of Lake Tuggeranong, ACT, at an altitude of 
     about 15 metres (eye level with my office window).  It just cruised on 
     It seemed to be escorted by a group of Wood Ducks, about 50 in all, in 
     two separate groups (roughly speaking).  They were flying with some a 
     little behind to the right, and some off to the left of the eagle.  
     It looked to be sort of coincidental, since there appeared to be no 
     discernible interaction between the ducks and the eagle.  Looked 
     interesting though.  Quite a nice sight.  Didn't last long enough.
