Philippine Eagle in flight. First attempt at bird photography, taken in Baguio City, Philippines.
I again agree with Eric. This is not a Philippine Eagle and it could be a juvenile Philippine Hawk-Eagle with its fully feathered tarsus.You can contact the Philippine Eagle Foundation thru this email: firstname.lastname@example.orgBTW, Nice photo! :)
Hi John. Probably not Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi) but maybe a young Philippine Hawk Eagle (Nisaetus philippensis). @JulianGalvez, P.Jefferyi can also be found in Luzon, though in few numbers particularly in the Northern Sierra Madre... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippine_...
Maybe this ?? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey-faced_...
Yup. Philippine Eagles are white underneath. And it looks like more of a hawk or a kite than an eagle.
Philippine Eagle's underwings and underside are white. I also agree its not Agila.
Thanks! And my apologies if my ID was incorrect. @Julian & @Ian, is this an Osprey? (I'm not an ornithologist, so I really can't tell)I sent an email to the Philippine Eagle Foundation to help verify but I haven't heard back. Please suggest the proper ID. Thanks! :)
Probably not P. jeffreyi. The eagle isn't kept anywhere near the Cordilleras or Sierra Madre, since it can't be coaxed into making a nest in these mountain ranges. They can be seen in Mindanao or Samar-Leyte, but not Luzon (exc. in zoos). Please consider double-checking.
Beautiful photo of a raptor in flight but you might want to double check, looks more like an osprey http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.a... than a Philippine eagle http://www.cultureight.com/haring-ibon-r...other photos of ospreyhttp://birdphotoph.proboards.com/index.c...and here's the Philippine Eagle Foundation website http://www.philippineeagle.org/index?pag...
beautiful photo of a beautiful bird.....
Really? Wow! I knew they were rare, but didn't know just how rare.
You're lucky. I heard that there are only 30 in the wild!
