Author's notes

There was what I thought was a young Wedge-tailed Eagle and what were most likely two Australian Ravens flying together in the sky. I am not sure what was going on although after a Google search it seemed a number of people have reported ravens chasing off Wedge-tailed Eagles. That would make sense as one raven departed while the other stayed with the eagle as they tracked northwards high over the hill. I could not hear any noise from them but one of my other shots appeared to show a raven with an open beak behind the eagle. The eagle did not seem to be that concerned by the raven, it just kept soaring in circles occasionally flapping its wings but mainly keeping them outstretched.
