Harpy eagle

With a wing span of 2meters and weighing in at 20lbs the harpy eagle is a bird of prey

This amazing bird can fly up to 50 mph which helps it capture its prey of sloths, birds opossums and monkeys

Harpia harpyja

Like many other birds of prey, Harpy Eagles continue to bring fresh green twigs and branches to the nest after the chick has hatched. Some researchers think this helps keep insects and parasites away and provides a cooler environment for the nestling.

The legs of a harpy eagle can be as thick as a small child's wrist!

It is a near threatened species
