Wedge-tailed Eagle Research

I have researched Wedge-tailed Eagle ecology in WA for over 10 years. This section is designed to present a variety of information about eagles to be used as an educational resource. The below lists present the scientific and popular articles published in the last few years. In the future, I will update further research as it becomes published. You can also visit my blog or the eagle tracking website for more recent research.
