Swamp Harriers of Braeside Park

There are several Swamp Harriers at Braeside Park Wetlands. On a recent visit we watched a pair circle the main wetlands in search of dinner. The usual bird alarm went up and gave us a chance to get ready to photograph the Harriers as they flew nearby. Over the wetlands, a single Little Raven kept flying up to harass the Harriers.
