VIDEO: A huge eagle flying away

This widge-tailed eagle was feeding on a kangaroo carcass on the road to Carnarvon in Western Australia. He flew away right in front of us!

Even though it’s a very short video, it gives you a nice idea of the size of this bird of prey. Its average wingspan is about 2,3 meters! With those heavy wings it takes a while for the bird to take off, so slow down when you’re driving by: otherwise you might hit or injure it while it’s trying to gain speed!
