Facts about the Philippine eagle

Good day to you!! 

Joey and Jinger want to know if you have ever heard of the Philippine eagle before? They think the Philippine eagle is cute because of the fluffy feathers on top of its head. Joey and Jinger would like me to tell you all about this very rare and majestic bird. The Philippine eagle was also known as the monkey eating eagle. It is in their nature to eat other animals such as monkeys and lemurs. The Philippine eagle is a carnivore. Carnivore means that they eat meat.
