Blackall to Winton

Road kills lines all of the roads out here. Primarily kangaroos and wallabies, but also feral pigs, foxes and small furry things. These attract raptors, so inevitably many of them become roadkill themselves. I can't understand how people can plow through them, just slowing down as you approach gives them time to take to the air. The birds were primarily Black Kite, but there were good numbers of Wedge-tailed Eagles including one pair that were feeding a young bird in a nearby tree.
