There’s no denying that eagles are majestic creatures, but the Harpy Eagle is a whole new level of majesty. They have a very expressive face, collar full of feathers with black and gray shades. What really sets them apart are these massive sizes.

Sadly, harpy eagles are becoming a rare sight throughout Latin America as rainforest deforestation reduces their habitat. Since harpy eagles are monogamous and only raise one eagle every two years, even a slight decrease in numbers can make population recovery difficult.
