I still can't get over the Philippine Eagle, how majestic it is and the chances that our future generation won't be able to get a glimpse of this mighty bird. It reminded me always of the Bible verse found in Isaiah 40:31:
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary, and they shall walk, and not faint."
The information I have gained while at the Philippine Eagle Center and the history regarding how it became our National Bird is something that every single Filipino must know of. This type of bird can only be found in our country, in different areas with huge low land forest such as Mindanao, Samar, and Leyte. Our Philippine Eagle is not a common one, it is one if not the biggest bird in the entire world with body and wingspan which goes beyond 3 feet and 7 feet respectively. It also has blue eyes, sadly, it is critically endangered.
Upon realizing that this information, although available in different textbooks and other resources including online, we as Filipinos are still not aware of why there is a need to really take care of these birds. As the poaching and hunting continue, it is the only wish of the staff in the Philippine Eagle Foundation and all partners to educate everyone, rich or poor, young or old, urban residents and even those in the mountains who are really the what referred the caretakers of our national bird.
Today's C-Blogging Querlo Chat is all about the Philippine Eagle, some fun facts about them and the reasons why we as humans, as Filipino citizens need to preserve them. Also, to give you an idea what the Philippine Eagle is, please do check my previous blogs about this animal:
Eagles, just like any other bird, do have their own unique features and behaviors. They also deserve to live and deserve to be left in their own in the wild. It is sad to see them in a cage but that is required to continue in the preservation of their bloodline. If this is not done, then, we might end up learning about these type of birds in textbooks, on the internet or just some preserved carcass inside museums and such.
