Larneuk—season of nesting birds

Pre-spring: Late July-August Bunjil Larneuk—the season of nesting birds #ground with a #morsel in her huge #talins. Struggling with every beat of her #wing, she wants to reach the #thermals. There she #glides #majestically, circling like she is #playing with the #wind Once on the wing, she #soars with ease, #circling at #greatheights to #altitudes of 2,000m! #WedgetailedEagle is a big, #strongbird, and can be slow to take flight from the ground. Her objective is to get home and feed her young this time of the year. #Parenting for these two is not easy with #chicks rarely surviving to three weeks of age. Wedge-tailed Eagles feature in many #dreamingstories for #Aboriginal #Australians: for example, the eagle #Bunjil is an important creator being for the #Kulinpeople of #centralVictoria. For the #Kaurnapeople of the #AdelaidePlains, the eagle’s claw takes the form of a constellation known as #Wilto (the Southern Cross). To be blessed to see a couple in your area is a miracle in itself now day's.
