It's not easy being top dog . . . er, bird. Apparently there are only 200 breeding pairs left of the Tasmanian sub species left.

Magnificent bird - always getting hassled by the others.

Great shot! I have a spotting of a Spanish Imperial Eagle fighting against an Eurasian Black Vulture:

Both of them are very large birds of prey
