Douglas Adams (Hitchiker's Guide) wrote a book about endangered species and talked about this eagle. He called it "a wildly improbable-looking piece of flying hardware you would sooner expect to see coming in to land on an aircraft carrier than nesting in a tree."

Love Douglas Adams work!


EmberBark

This looks like the secretary bird's boss.

Oh my god I would gild you to bits if I could


_My_Name_Is_Jeff

Hammar_Morty

Yeah, who burnt the top of this poor bird's head, reminds me of torched meringue.

I imagine the other birds probably gave this guy some wicked sweet bird name like Balthazar or some shit.


SugarPlumFarie

Is this the one called the "monkey eater?" (or is that the Harpy one?) They are huge. I read somewhere, or a maybe a David Attenborough special, that they will snatch large lemurs out of the air as they jump from tree to tree. Can lift big & feisty wild pigs/boars off the ground. And I think they even hunt deer. Less than a 1000 in the wilds, but that was after 40 years of trying to bring them back from the brink of extinction.

That is correct, another name for the raptor (at least in the Philippines) is the “Monkey Eating Eagle”, it is also named “Haribon” meaning “bird-king” in the Filipino language. The Philippine eagle is the national bird of the Philippines, sadly it is critically endangered due to loss of habitat, although killing one is punishable by 12 years imprisonment and heavy fines


cakatooop

I remember a film where a girl killed one to make her father proud and spiraled into conflict


avibat

Birdshot, also available in Netflix


fitchbit

Is it a good film?


avibat

Kind of, but you'll learn about a thing or two.


dibellanarts

IIRC, conservationists actually proposed to stop using the name "Monkey-Eating Eagle" because it gives the Philippine Eagle an antagonistic reputation, like it was an evil villain to the monkeys. They hoped changing the name would help in protecting the remaining populations.


StairsAtYou

Not to mention it does not feed exclusively on monkeys.


dust_421

idk if this is intentional but is it haribon because of 'hari' (king) + 'ibon' (bird) i dont really know cuz am no from the regions that speak tagalog or any other region in the country where that pun works


StairsAtYou

Yes, it's haring ibon.


Phantoma_Fenrir

I don't know why but the positioning of his head screams "I'm your animal party member." in an RPG to me...


kkob3

Looking forward to seeing what r/divorcedbirds comes up with.


BlueEyedNonSimp

Done.


OldBatOfTheGalaxy

One startlingly-impressive raptor; it's obvious why a nation would choose it to represent their people. Not only the fierceness, size and striking plumage but that cobalt blue scimitar of a beak make one unmistakable sight. He's got the same highlight job as every second youngish male on US TV between the mid 70s -- late 80s.


mlc2475

adri_anna

LostMindu

cakatooop

It's nicknamed the Haribon, from the two words "hari" meaning king and "ibon" which means bird


elcrocro

Does it also use it speak to point of things?


MischiefGoddez

So intense, so majestic!!! ❤️😍


Fickle-Opinion-3114

So which is bigger, the Harpy, Stellar or Philippine eagle?

“The Philippine eagle is the largest eagle in the world in terms of length and wing surface — the harpy and Steller's sea eagle are the largest in terms of weight.”

You can tell the Philippines was an American territory. Can’t you


StairsAtYou

Yes but why exactly did you conclude that from the photo?


JustintheMinecrafter

As a filipino I would like to tell you: What the fuck were those words you typed with your fingers?
