What happens to Harpy Eagles when it rains?
At the Tapiche Reserve in the northern Amazon of Peru, we take visitors out for jungle adventures rain or shine. This means we might get wet on the trail or in the boat, but we're not alone... This beautiful but soggy young Harpy Eagle (Harpia harpyja) seemed to be as amused by our presence as we were delighted by hers.
The Harpy is the largest raptor in the rainforest, with a majestic wingspan of 2.5m/8 ft. They nest only in the tallest mature trees with natural clearance in the surrounding canopy for their broad wings to soar.
