Little Eagle

Little Eagle Uncertainty

While from media reports the Little Eagle seems to be doing well, there are grounds for concern amongst experts who have been studying this bird for many years. The 3 successful breeding pairs observed recently is a far smaller number than the 13 observed in the 1980s and 1990s. It is currently listed as vulnerable in both the ACT and NSW.
