Harpy eagles are the most powerful birds of prey in the world. Standing three feet tall, with a six-foot wingspan and razor-sharp talons the size of bear claws, these birds are the heavyweight hunters of the South American rainforest. But scientists know very little about harpy eagles because their numbers are few, their habitat is large, they never soar above the trees, and they rarely come to the ground. Nature enters their secret world with wildlife filmmaker Fergus Beeley.

There is certainly 5 stars worth of beauty in this film. The power, beauty, and grace of these creatures is simply staggering.

Very instructive. I had no idea such amazing birds even existed. I was very throw back by their sheer strength.

Really enjoyed this documentary. It's not as technically brilliant as other nature documentaries, but the difficulties in filmography really add to the understanding of how difficult it can be to learn about species who live in inaccessible locations. It does compensate for the lack of action, quite a bit of information is provided about the dangers the chicks face, all the way through to adulthood. Furthermore, how these Eagles spend more time raising their young to ensure continuation of the species.
