The Harpy Eagle lives
in Central and South America.
The natural habitat
of the Harpy Eagle is the forests, staying close to the tropical conditions around the Equator.
The Harpy Eagles eat
primarily animals that live in trees like sloths, opossums, monkeys, snakes and some other birds and reptiles. Harpy Eagles
are highly maneuverable fliers and strike their prey after a rapid pursuit through the trees.
The Harpy Eagles build
their huge nests in the tallest part of the tree it founds in the tropical rain forest. The Harpy female lays 1-2 eggs but
only one hatches. The little Harpy stays with their parents at least for three years.
The Harpy Eagle has
endured a successful captivity breeding program helped by the Peregrine Fund in our country.
The Harpy Eagle
is the national bird of Panama.
