Philippine Eagle (captive) + Osprey

Great thread, idol Romy!

Here's a portrait of our national bird (taken in captivity).

To non-Filipinos:

This bird is critically endangered. There are only a few remaining individuals of this majestic raptor, 36 of which are in the custody of the Philippine Eagle Center. There are only a few photos of this species taken in the wild as they live in very remote areas. I myself am yet too see one in its natural habitat.
