Vulnerable little eagle covers Australia

Obviously no one told the little eagle size was a problem because Canberra's own mini-raptors have been caught flying as far as Bundaberg and Port Pirie.

The little eagle is listed as a vulnerable species in the ACT and NSW but not federally.

Authorities tracked six eagles in 2018-19 using small solar-powered backpacks with GPS trackers attached to the birds.

The most astonishing journey was from an 18-month-old female fledgling, which has been travelling its entire life - flying to Bundaberg in Queensland, then the Gold Coast, then Victoria, then Port Pirie in South Australia, then East Gippsland on the Victorian coast. On Thursday, it started heading north again.
