Sea Eagle over Beenleigh (SEQ)

I just got to my usual place in the park when this came over. Young Sea Eagle? Thanks.

Agree with Juvenile White Bellied Sea Eagle.The underside wing pattern match almost perfectly with Morcombes pictures in the app.

Nice find and great pics.

Just for my benefit, what is the other bird in the first photo?

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks dwatsonbb -- When ever a Sea Eagle comes by, the magpies (as in this case) and the crows and miner birds go for the dear thing. "The enemies of my enemy are (temporarially) my friends."

Ah thanks for that guys, I thought it looked bigger than a maggie. Distance perception not my strong point.
