Now here’s a bird you’ve probably never seen before! Although Harpy Eagles have gained some popularity on the internet due to their amazing looks, now they’re mostly mentioned as a species on the verge of extinction – all thanks to humanity’s activity that destroys their forests, leaving these majestic birds without food and habitat. On a brighter note, Harpy Eagles can still be found in Brazil and some parts of South America. These beautiful birds are among the biggest eagles on Earth and if you see one, you’ll never be able to forget its powerful image!
Let’s just stop for a second appreciate the wild beauty and truly amazing appearance of the Harpy Eagle? Because of its supernatural size, many people actually think it’s not a bird, but someone dressed as one!
Needless to say, they are convinced otherwise very soon. It’s hard to mistake this eagle for something other than a huge predator that it is.
Their long sharp talons are no joke and you kind of understand this is not the bird that will feed on bugs and small insects. Nope! A Harpy Eagle will go hunting for big animals that spend most of their time in the trees – parrots, raccoons, iguanas, foxes, and sometimes even black vultures.
