Go the mighty eagles!

The West Coast Eagles champion mascot, Eddie, is none other than Australia's largest flying land bird: the Wedge-tailed Eagle.

These majestic birds live all over Australia, but are rarely seen in Perth with known pairs found around the Perth Airport and Jandakot, but are more often seen in the hills along the Darling Scarp. You can see the West Coast mascot, Aussie the Eagle fly around Optus stadium at the beginning of games.

Go Eagles!!
