The Great Philippine Eagle

Haring Ibon: The Great Philippine Eagle

Is the first book of its kind that focuses solely on the majestic yet critically endangered National Bird of the Philippines. The reader gets a rare and close-up glimpse of the life of a Philippine Eagle pair and their eaglet, Sinabadan, who made their nest and reared their offspring in the ancestral domain of the Bagobo-Tagabawa indigenous peoples community in Sibulan, Davao del Sur.

Through the lens of wild bird photographer Alain Pascua, the book features photographs of the milestones and challenges these magnificent birds faced, whether from nature or from man. The book is primarily a documentation of the Philippine Eagle family in its nesting site in the forests of Mt. Apo Natural Park in Mindanao from day 10, still an egg, up to day 152 when the young Sinabadan was photographed flying away from its nest and until one year after.

The book is further enriched by more photographs and testimonials from members of the Wild Bird Photographers of the Philippines (WBPP) and other birdwatchers making this book truly a treasure to have in honor of the Great Philippine Eagle.
