I was birding at ash island this morning at wagtail way.There was a flock of 
about 250 chestnut teal and maybe 10 australian shovelers.An immature 
white-breasted sea eagle flew overhead puting the chestnut teal to flight.The 
teal wheeled in a tight flock and the eagle slowly flew down and grabbed a male 
shoveler sitting on the surface of the water.It all looked ridiculously 
easy.The shoveler seemed to be confused and didn't know which way to fly so 
instead it just froze.The eagle drowned it for 2 or 3 minutes and then flew off 
with it.
