Some interesting data you have posted there David George. I was stationed in the Philippine Islands for about six years while in the U.S. Navy and those eagles they have over there are really something else. It seems that here a while back they were featured on Nature on PBS. Quite large and awesome they were. :D

Sorry to ask you Mr Ramos but do you have any photos of the monkey eating eagle.I have only seen a martial eagle in Kenya thats when I recognised tha eagles are huge creatures especially when I saw it flying.

I am sorry David George, I have no photographs from the Philippines. :( During my time of sevice there, my time was spent more in traveling and see things, along with my work, rather than photographing them. :D Looking back to those now lost years, I really wish that I had taken photos of every place that I had visited during my time of naval service. :(

For Louisiana it's the alligator and the pelican.

Thanks for the photos cardiorrhexis.I have seen a beautiful painting of this bird as if it was going to catch a monkey and the monkey would be screaming.I am not sure which book I saw it but I will get to know it tommorow.

Wild Turkey


Speaking about turkey I remember once I read the the US president franklin[the president in the 100 US dollar note] planned to make turkey as the national bird because he liked its calmness but it was changed to the Bald Eagle.

Yeah, I think they made it the bald eagle because nobody wanted our national bird to be something we shoot at for Christmas dinner. And the most dangerous animal in the world is Homo sapiens. I am man, hear me roar.
