Little eagle was gliding around the open grass kind and wooded area in circles, then joined what looked like a mate over near highpoint. It didn't make any dives for food that I saw. Video also taken, but it wouldn't upload
I don’t think that’s a Little Eagle. It looks like a Square-tailed Kite, possibly. One was reported over Royal Park very recently. An incredible record.
My birdbook says that the Little Eagle soars on flat wings but these are upswept- like a Square-tailed Kite. Also the fingers on the wings are very long/prominent, again suggesting STK.
It's 100% a Square-tailed Kite, it's been reported around Royal Park over the past few days http://www.eremaea.com/BirdlineRecentSightings.aspx?Birdline=1
