In honor of World Eagle Day (this Sunday, March 25th), I’d like to share some images from my various eagle encounters over the years. Though I generally prefer owls, I have been fortunate to see and photograph a number of different eagle species over the years, and the #1 bird on my wish list also happens to be an eagle: the gigantic Harpy eagle of South America.
Here are a few of the eagles I’ve encountered in the Americas, Africa and Asia.
Eagles come in all shapes in sizes. I’ve seen Wedge-tailed eagles in Australia and have heard Ornate hawk-eagles in the tropics of Latin America. But there are loads I have yet to photograph. Perhaps I’ll finally land that Harpy eagle in the Brazilian Amazon this year!
Remember, you can find more eagle photos on this site by using the keyword search in the photo archive.
