Wedge-tailed Eagles are found throughout Australia, including Tasmania, and southern New Guinea in almost all habitats, though they tend to be more common in lightly timbered and open country in southern and eastern Australia.
As the breeding season approaches, a pair of Wedge-tailed Eagles will perch close to each other and preen one other. They also perform dramatic aerobatic display flights together over their territory. The Wedge-Tailed Eagle usually nests in the fork of a tree between one and 30 metres above the ground, but if there are no suitable sites, it will nest on a cliff edge.
At Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary our Wedge-Tailed Eagles put on a breathtaking daily performance in the Free Flight Bird Show. Demonstrating amazing airborn-acrobatics, these magnificent creatures fly unrestrained over the crowd, showcasing their extraordinary behaviours.
