🔥 Philippine Eagle 🔥

The guy she tells me not to worry about
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!
This looks like the secretary bird's boss.
Oh heck YEAH.

Oh my god I would gild you to bits if I could
Well this dude is fuckin’ lit
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.
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
I remember a film where a girl killed one to make her father proud and spiraled into conflict
Birdshot, also available in Netflix
Is it a good film?
Kind of, but you'll learn about a thing or two.
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.
Not to mention it does not feed exclusively on monkeys.
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
Yes, it's haring ibon.
I don't know why but the positioning of his head screams "I'm your animal party member." in an RPG to me...
Looking forward to seeing what r/divorcedbirds comes up with.
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.
If Nicholas Cage were an Eagle
He's here to beat ur ass.
wasn't this a character in Street Fighter?
So which is bigger, the Harpy, Stellar or Philippine eagle?
Ain’t having none of your BS.
It looks embarrassed.
"I'm sorry I ate all your goldfish crackers."
Beautiful picture of one of the most impressive eagles!
Thank you for sharing!
Is it called an "Eagoll"?
Shit, this guy looks like he’s mortally offended by my English homework submission.
getting real tired of your shit, human
Its pretty like a BULAKLAK!
What kind of flower? :)
Like a WALING-WALING!
Oh yeah I do see it! :D
Who put gel in this mans hair
Edit: he doesn’t have hair
It's nicknamed the Haribon, from the two words "hari" meaning king and "ibon" which means bird
Does it also use it speak to point of things?
So intense, so majestic!!! ❤️😍
“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.”
Why big Bird mad?
Why I'm getting Clint Eastwood vibes from this eagle?
https://youtu.be/-iwr45CBR9c video on them.
one of the most beautiful eagle in my country but sadly they are getting instinct :'((
This is how I picture book Professor McGonagall looks at her students when they act stupid
He got that fresh cut.
Looking like she's channeling the velociraptor she used to be!
Fuck boi eagle
Stop looking at me like that, I didn't steal anything from you.
It’s got that long hair slick back, white t-shirt..
The longest (but not the heaviest or longest winged) living eagle
what's their barber's @ ?
Now that’s what I call an anime character!
80’s bully eagle
That bird fucked my SO and I’m offended that I wasn’t invited…
You can tell the Philippines was an American territory. Can’t you
Yes but why exactly did you conclude that from the photo?
As a filipino I would like to tell you: What the fuck were those words you typed with your fingers?
At no point did I say it was good
