A gigantic bird's nest on Dirk Hartog Island in Shark Bay, six feet tall but with a shallow bowl, made from mimosa branches. It was probably built by a white-bellied sea eagle. The island is named after the second European to land on Australia, in 1616. A plate from the official account of Louis-Claude de Freycinet's circumnavigation, 'Voyage Autour Du Monde fait par ordre du roi sur les corvettes de S.M l'Uranie et la Physicienne pendant les années 1817, 1818, 1819 et 1820'.
