Ornate hawk eagle sighting

Ornate hawk eagle in Bajo del Tigre

Back in August Jamie Codd visited Bajo del Tigre and got up close to a perched ornate hawk eagle. He just sent us the pictures.

It’s pretty lucky to see an ornate hawk eagle perched like that in Bajo del Tigre. They are rare in this area and if they are seen at all they are more likely to be soaring high in the sky and be identified by their call. If you’re really lucky you might see their spectacular courtship in which the male climbs and dives in the air occasionally looping or touching talons with the female.

If any of you have interesting pictures from you visit to The Children’s Eternal Rainforest, we’d love to see them and do a story on them in this blog.
