SPECIES INFO

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

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.
