Raptors - Birds of Prey

If you see a Raptor or any bird of prey like eagles, falcons or hawks, please keep your distance, do not try to touch it or try to contain it.

Wedgetail Eagles are birds of prey

All these bird of prey have very strong and powerful beaks and talons that can cause significant injury. 

Like most native fauna, they are wary of people and will usually flee if given the opportunity. 

If you stay well away from these birds they usually present no immediate danger, however like most large animals it is best to keep children and pets well away from them, even if they are injured.

If you’ve found an injured bird of prey 

Phone WIRES Rescue Line on 1300 094 737 immediately so that we can organise a trained rescuer to attend. Keep an eye on the bird from a safe distance. Keep all pets and people away until the situation is resolved.
