The Harpy Eagle is a species of eagle, and the largest and most powerful raptor found in the Americas.

Harpy Eagles range from Mexico, through Central America and into South America. However, destruction of its natural habitat has seen it vanish from most of its former range, and it is almost extinct in Central America.
