The Harpy eagle is a large bird of prey that hunts the Amazon rainforest. It is the heaviest and most powerful raptor in the Americas. Sloths and monkeys form part of its diet. It lives in the Amazon rainforest. The Harpy eagle is a neotropical species of eagle. The Harpy eagle is among the largest species of eagle. Destruction of its natural habitat has caused it to vanish from many parts of its former range, and is nearly extirpated from much of Central America. They do not migrate. Instead they hunt in their established territory and their diet does not change. The Harpy eagle will have to change by flying across the savanna and will need less feathers. They will have to eat Gazelle, small birds, and bunny’s. Harpy eagles will have to nest on the ground in tall grass. The eggs won’t need to be sat on as much.
