Wedge-tailed Eagle Facts The Wedge-tailed eagle is Australianâ€™s largest eagle. It has a wingspan of about 2.3 m and a wedge-shaped tail with feathers. The chicks are white and their first feathers are a reddish brown, getting blacker as they age. They mate for life, although if one of a pair is killed they will find another mate. Breeding pairs are territorial. Both parents share the incubation and feeding of the young. We have a wedge-tailed eagle nest on Wire Hill at Rocklily and have watched the young take flight â€“ they make three hunting rabbits for a while, then eventually we are back to two eagles.
