The subject of mis-identified birds is greater than you think especially
with the general public, and some bird watchers.
Recently we travelled across the Nullabor and up the centre, and to our
dismay, the lack of Wedge-tailed Eagles, whether in flight or eating
We always mentioned this to many a traveller, and there comment is ' we've
seen hundreds off wedgies in the air and at the side of the road'.
So while talking to these traveller's, we always look upwards to see what we
can see, if there are Black or Whistling Kite's, we say 'nice bird that'.
There comment is, 'Wedgie'. So it boils down to the total ignorance and lack
of knowledge of these birds. To us, it seems that any large bird of prey in
the air or on the side of the road is a Wedgie, and this is only the tip of
the ice berg.
