Lord of The Philippine Forest



A photo by Klaus Nigge of National Geographic showing the feeding of a baby Philippine Eagle in the captive-breeding program at the Philippine Eagle Foundation near Davao, Mindanao. Workers cover their hands with eagle-head puppets when feeding eagle chicks to help prevent the birds’ imprinting on humans.
Philippine Eagle locally known as Haribon or Haring Ibon (Bird King) is considered the largest eagle in the world. But these birds are nearing its extinction because of the massive exploitation of our forests. More Photos after the jump.

An adult female feeds a chick in a nest on Mount Kitanglad in central Mindanao.


The fierce look the Lord of The Philippine Forests.
