Significant sighting

  1 Jun 2019

Clear shots like this helps towards compiling the story of what Canberra's Little Eagles are doing over winter. If you get a chance can people please check to see whether a bird has a leg band/ and or small solar transmitter on its back (usually the aerial can just be seen pointing back from bird)

Thanks Michael, had a close look at all of the pics and there was no sign of an aerial.
Wondered if you had looked at sighting 4207138 as this dark morph Little Eagle looked different to others we had seen and was quite a distance from the Wetlands. No sign of an aerial on this one either. Thanks for your time and help really appreciate all you do.
