Harpy Eagle

I saw this Harpy Eagle at LaMilpa in January 2006. They had released 6 eagles from Panama trying to reintroduce back to Belize. I believe none are reaining in Belize now.

Harpys are still here and being tracked. One left the La Milpa area a few weeks ago and was tracked to just outside Belmopan, but has since returned. Intelligent, curious birds, they will not hurt your pets or farm animals.

Monkey and pig are on the menu.
I've seen one,possibly the same one, eat a monkey at Tekal.
It was wearing a gps locator ankle bracelet on its left leg.

Don't tell the farmers Elbert, we have to make sure no one shoots the eagles protecting their livestock.
