One of the larger varieties of eagle, the harpy eagle is found in tropical rainforests nesting in the upper canopy. They are very strong and can lift heavy prey (up to their own body weight) up into their canopy nests to feed. They are also known to have the largest talons amongst their mundane avian kin.
