A short time ago, at 10:45am, all pea sticks and pick handles erupted as a 
loose flock of some 100 highly raucous Sulphur-crested Cockatoos flew over my 
part of Holt (West Belconnen, Canberra) from the south heading north. As is my 
custom when beset with such outbursts of Cacatuidae cacophony I hauled butt 
outside posthaste replete with binos. Immediately, I saw a Wedge-tailed Eagle 
trailing along about 150 metres behind the fleeing C'toos.

I had a good seven seconds' view before it went into a long descending glide. 
Perhaps it was headed for a touchdown a Lake Ginninderra, but I couldn't tell.
