Kala & Aus Geo
You might remember a few weeks ago when I was thrilled to find Kala, our sat-tagged juvenile Wailitj hanging out with his parents, and be lucky enough to take some close-up photos of him perched in the morning sun. Today Australian Geographic reported on a recently published journal article about Wedge-tailed Eagle movement ecology (as studied by DNA), and one of these photos of Kala featured as the headline image! You can read the article, which contains some very interesting findings about the ecology of wedgies in Tasmania, at the Aus Geo blog here.
