I was just watching Attenborough's 1hr doco on eagles of the world, which
incidentally is quite good. Biased though, toward the North American
species. A couple of questions:

When talking about our favourite eagle the Wedgetail, he suggested that
they've gone back to their traditional food sources (non-rabbits) and were
know to take young Roos! Has anyone seen a reference to support this? Also,
they stated that the Wedgie is Australia's "only large bird of prey". I
thought the WB Sea-Eagle was pretty big, though maybe he's only talking
about endemics.

But more interesting was the footage of the Philipines Eagle. Has anyone got
any information on the status at the moment? Everything I've found has been
quite old. What a great tick that would be, Anyone up for a 12 day walking
safari in the Philipine Rainforest?
