With its sharp eyes, the Harpy is highly concentrated with its crest of feathers on the back of its head standing to attention. It roams the tropical rainforests of South America in search of prey. Not even the tiniest of movements escapes its notice – so playing hide and seek would be really unfair!
The Harpy looks impressive with its dark plumage and the striped feathers on its legs. But watch out: Its feathery crest is sticking back which should be a warning! It means that the large bird of prey is on high alert. What do you think it has spotted? The Harpy may be about to set off on a hunt. With its powerful claws it can even kill monkeys and carry them away! But it also lets friends carry it around and will even feed from your hand!
