Hi all

I've seen adult Sea-eagles eat carrion on two occasions before, both road
killed kangaroos.  One was last year on the Julia Creek to Normanton Road
(Queensland) about 5 k's South of the Cloncurry River and the other only two
weekends ago between Roper Bar and Mataranka (Northern Territory) about
10k's from the Roper River.  On both occasions there were also Black and
Whistling Kites also surrounding the road kills but the Sea-eagle had the
rule of the roost.
