Hello SPOT
Hello everybirdie. Zeena here with today's Rainforest findings. I wish to thank everyone for their awesome support and hope you will enjoy today's feature species.
The Harpy Eagle is a majestic shadow that silently soars above the Rainforest canopy. Once common, and plentiful, today they rest on the brink of extinction. Previously a common sight in Brazil, the Harpy Eagle has become as rare as seeing a unicorn would be. Hunted to near extinction for their feathers, sport and out of fear and concern for their livestock, these awesome giants of the Raptor world are rapidly disappearing. These birds terrify hapless animals that forage in the shifting sunlight of the high canopy. Harpy eagle is the largest and the most powerful raptor throughout America. They belong to the family of accipitridae. American harpy eagle typically inhabits lowland rainforests but are disappearing from much of its range due to habitat loss and it almost extirpated in Central America.
The Harpy Eagle weighs in at 20 to 27 pounds for a hen and 12 to 17 pounds for a male, standing between 40 and 60 inches in length, sporting 5 to 7 inch talons it is a formidable predator dining on a diet consisting largely of sloth and moneys, with other animals making up the balance. In flight the Harpy flies on strong 5 to 7 foot wide spans, silent and watchful for a meal below in the dense Rain Forest canopy.
With wide spread clear-cutting and man's guns, the Harpy Eagle is soon going to be gone from the wild habitat it once claimed. Nesting in tree top nests, the single chick remains with the parents for up to two years. Pairs mate for life thus making it harder to rebuild endangered populations. Many Harpy Eagles have be poached for the private collector market relentlessly, with current breeding programs being established to help stave off their total elimination. Used by Bird of Prey enthusiasts and trained to hunt on command. Many die from lack of proper diet, and education of would be owners. New Government regulations being in place it is hoped to make owning Harpy Eagles a more difficult objective. Would be owners now have to finish a Government regulated Raptors training program which entails sixteen to eighteen months apprenticeship training in care, training and husbandry.
Tomorrow we will take a closer look at a new and exciting find that is shaking the bird community. Discovered in a nestbox, this unusual baby has enthusiasts in awe.
A quick reminder that on Friday July 4th my fister LITTLE ANGEL THRIFT will wed the handsome Mr Dixie Adler at the BC Castle page number 239094
