Film about the Philippine Eagle

I have been sent a link to a very worthwhile film about the Philippine Eagle (earlier known as monkey-eating eagle), a story that is also told. The film is released by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. It goes for 1 hour 34 minutes. This is dramatic looking but a little known species and this film is quite impressive, of the birds breeding, filmed in very difficult situation. It also covers the very fraught conservation situation, that just might be improving, and the people who are working to assist it. The link is behind this name: Bird of Prey – YouTube  On my visits to the Philippines, I several times visited the one Philippine Eagle in Manilla, it was captive in the Aquino zoo but died recently and there is no replacement. It is a very impressive bird.
