Philippine Eagle Soars in Samar Island Natural Park

The Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) and the Institute of Biology of the University of the Philippines - Diliman recently reconfirmed the existence of the great Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga jefferyi)  at the Samar Island Natural Park (SINP).

A team from the PEF and the UP Institute of Biology reports sightings of the mighty bird at the forests of Calbiga, Samar and Taft, Eastern Samar during their expedition, September 19 to October 4, 2014.

The Philippine Eagle was sighted in the thickly forested Barangay Buluan in Calbiga, where the juvenile Philippine Eagle “Calbiga” was captured by hunters in 2011. The second sighting was within the Taft Forest Wildlife (Philippine Eagle) Sanctuary, both areas within the SINP.
