He is waiting



This was one of my 'must see' birds in Peru! It's a juvenile bird which I found in the peruvian rainforest. We were working 3km away from our camp at a release cage. We just arrived there with some spider monkeys as we heard an eaglescream! People told me that I should have a look what and where it is.. and after 5min I found a big juvenile harpy eagle sitting on a big tree and eating an opossum! During the next days he were waiting close to the cage and watching the monkeys
