Raptor Facts

This is one of the Eagles that has different colours or “morphs” within the same species, varying from dark brown to a light cream colour. Wahlbergs Eagles will often take young birds out of nests (herons and Egrets) by working as a pair. One bird dives in to scare the parents, whilst the other follows to snatch the young! Another favoured way of getting food is to hunt alongside grass fires. As animals flee the flames, the Eagle catches them.
