Editorial Reviews

Harpy eagles are the most powerful birds of prey in the world. Standing three feet tall, with six-foot wingspans and razor-sharp talons the size of bear claws, they are the heavyweight hunters of the South American rainforest. These eagles are the top predators in the jungle canopy, feeding regularly on monkeys and sloths. But scientists know very little about them because their numbers are few, and their habitat is large. Hidden in the branches of the canopy, the birds are rarely seen, let alone filmed. Wildlife filmmaker Fergus Beeley and his team of cameramen enter the secret world of harpy eagles, locate a nest, and struggle to document the lives of these elusive birds in Venezuela s Orinoco River jungle. It s a dangerous proposition. To obtain pictures of the parents and chick in the nest, the team risks serious injury, and is ultimately forced to wear riot gear in the oppressive jungle heat to protect themselves from the notoriously aggressive birds. But the rewards are great. The team is able to observe the chick for a full year as he grows, learns to fly, and hunt, while gathering a treasure trove of new information about these remarkable birds. When the time comes for the team to leave, Beeley finds himself surprised by the extraordinary connection he has made with the majestic young eagle he will never forget.

I have no choice but to give Jungle Eagle five stars. I'll tell you why if you have a minute or two to spare.

The simple truth is this documentary has many things going for it. As always, this Nature film has amazing video and sound quality. The story is compelling too, even more so than usual and that is saying a lot. This bird lives in hard to get to places that are in and of themselves dangerous. And the beautiful creature is itself very dangerous as you quickly find out in the film. So what really stands out even more than that? Why, the interaction between beast and man. Let me tell you what I mean.

The Harpy Eagle, the species this show is about, is very intelligent as one quickly notices. The resident eagles in this program are aware of everything that goes on in their domain including the small humans trying to invade their home. They do everything they can to drive them out. They have no interest in them being there. Well, ok, the eagle chick seems interested. In fact, watch particularly at the end of the film for the interesting things he does. He seems to genuinely like the people. The events documented herein would seem most strange if it was not there right in front of you. Amazing I say.

I think this documentary is yet another exhibit about why we absolutely must protect the wild places of the world. I expect you probably agree with this or you would not be reading this or thinking about getting this movie. All I can say is buy it, watch it, and enjoy. If you don't you will be missing out on something amazing. Enjoy!

I'm a birder and I love birds. This is a wonderful DVD about the "Harpy Eagle" (Jungle Eagle). We loved watching the birds and seeing how they caught the growth of the baby eagle from birth to and adult. Our only problem at first is watching the Specialist enter onto the story and then hearing no voice. At first we thought the DVD was broke. After two tries we realized it was "captioned". We thought being in South America maybe it was in another Language. We watched the whole story enjoyed the photography and the hard dangerous work the men went through placing cameras up, etc near the Eagles. It did not say "closed captioned".
Maybe our DVD could play the voices of the people in the DVD. They looked like they all could speak English. Why was it captioned? It was too hard to watch the beauty of the birds and the other creatures and birds while at the same time trying to read the captions. We just watched the Documentary and occasionally read. The captions went too fast because it was keeping up with the speed of the person talking.
It was quiet though the whole DVD. Did we get the wrong one or was it supposed to be captioned? Maybe we missed the sounds of the creatures. The great part of the captions was they did identify the creatures!

This movie covers the powerful Harpy Eagle, the largest eagle of all eagles in the world. Our story begins in the jungles of Venezuela's Orinoco River jungle. Wildlife filmmakers Fergus Beeley covers a Harpy Eagle nest, and films a newly hatched eagle nestling, through its development, as his parents hunts and brings him all the food he needs until he's old enough to leave the nest and fend for himself.

Harpy Eagles are powerful enough to hunt Howler Monkeys, and Two Toed Sloughs. I enjoyed this movie, the look of the eagles, even the sounds they make when they are vocal. You will see how powerfully built they are. The movie is crystal clear, and the scenery is all jungle, with the sound of other exotic birds being heard in the background.

No much information can be found about big jungle eagles, like Harpy or Philippine eagles. The current documentary is a rare and very welcome peace of information about South American Harpy eagle. The only downside is the lack of eagle hunting sequences in the film.

The nature series is a wonderful series from PBS. I love birds and have learned a lot about our indigenous species the American Bald Eagle through the Decorah Eagles web site and have learned a lot more through these informative educational DVD's. Thank you

this magnificent bird is so beautiful. I applaud the patience and perserverance of the folks who spend weeks in uncomfortable and sometimes dangerous places to show us the private lives of some of the world's more elusive creatures.
