The Philippine Eagle Center

For our first day in Davao, we started our tour by going to the Philippine Eagle Center with Solem, JuneLyn and her son, John.  The conservation center houses, breeds and cares for not only the Philippines national bird but other avian species, too. The Philippine Eagle is considered critically endangered due to human encroachment upon their environment and the fact that they only reproduce approximately every two years.  The eagles are bred in captivity in order to raise their numbers.

 

 

 

 

As we followed the path to the eagles, there were informative signs along the way…

 

 

 

 

 

We especially appreciated this one!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Getting closer…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here “he” is!! This is actually a zoomed-in photo. The aviary is way above the path probably so as not to disturb them which is actually a good idea. I was pretty happy with the quality of my zoom lens on my little Sony camera.

 

 

 

 

 

This guy was on a podium (of sorts). Very majestic!

 

More tomorrow…
