Philippine Serpent Eagles

Philippine Serpent Eagles (Spilornis holospilus)

The Philippine Serpent Eagles, Spilornis holospilus, is an eagle found in the major islands of the Philippines, where it is usually found in forest clearings, open woodlands, and sometimes in cultivated lands with scattered trees. It is sometimes treated as a race of the Crested Serpent Eagle (Spilornis cheela).

On January 18, 2008, a Philippine Serpent Eagle was rescued in a forest in Barangay Laylaya, Besao, Mountain Province. It suffered a right-wing gunshot wound, damaging a bone (similar to a bird caught at Lake Danum, Sagada in 2000). Another serpent eagle rescued in the Cordillera died three days after it was brought to the custody of the PAWB years ago.
