Harpy Eagle History
This bird was first time introduced in 1758 by Linaus in his Systema Nature.The binomial name/Latin nameof this eagle is Harpia harpyja.This dull dark winged animal of prey has an attractive look, with plumes on its head that fan into a strong peak when the feathered creature feels undermined. Some littler dark quills make a facial circle that may center sound waves to improve the flying creature’s hearing, like owls.
Mostly Females are big ina size and weight almost 6 to 9 Kg while on the other side males have a 5 to 6 Kg. This species is to a great extent quiet away from the home. There, the grown-ups give an entering, feeble, despairing shout, with the hatching guys’ call portrayed as “whispy shouting or crying”. The females’ calls while hatching are comparable, yet are lower-pitched. While moving toward the home with nourishment, the male gets out “quick peeps, goose-like calls, and intermittent sharp shouts”. Vocalization in the two guardians diminishes as the nestlings’ age, while the nestlings become increasingly vocal. At the point when people approach the home, the nestlings have been depicted as articulating croaks, quacks, and whistles.
