We heard a commotion, and eventually looked up to see a battle in the sky! The pied currawongs looked almost as big as the kite. A little while later I looked up from the plants I was photographing, only to see two gliding low over the power lines.

Nice one, only the second photo sighting of the Square-tailed Kite on Canberra Nature Map.
