Harpy eagles (harpia harpyja) are grey and white birds with huge grizzly bear claw sized talons. Their crown has four vertical feathers to block sun glare. Their wingspan is seven feet and they weigh fourteen pounds. My second drawing is of an eagle in a marsh that takes up the rainforest coasts in a thousand years. The eagle now has mycorrhizal fungi on its back which will soak up water and eat dead skin to keep it clean. The Harpy will give the fungi a home and food.The eagle has a larger keel allowing for more muscle to go faster and avoid panthers. The eagle has stiff feathers and swept back wings. My third illustration is of a rainforest that is now a savanna. The eagle now has infrared vision for night hunting when it is cooler. It lives in caves and gets its moisture through its prey.
