Harpy eagles are considered to be one of the largest eagles. Their talons get as large as that of a grizzly bear. Their name comes from the Greek word "harpie" referring to a bird of prey. Written by Greek scholars and may be correlated with the mythological harpies who were winged creatures with extremely large sharp claws, a woman's face and the body of a vulture. They feed on animals that live in trees such as sloths, monkeys, opossums and other birds.
Although the picture quality is not very good, it was positively identified as a harpy eagle.
Spotted a Harpy Eagle @bocawina Rainforest Resort & Adventures. An eagle that is considered to be one of the largest eagles. Even the owner of the resort was surprised that this bird was captured in picture because they've never had one there before. Had to zoom in all the way in. Hope this post reaches him. #harpyeagle #eagle #bird #rainforest #bocawina #bocawinafalls #rarebird
