I was reading of this great big prehistoric eagle that used to hunt the giant moas on New Zealand – Haast’s eagle, when I was reminded of how fascinated Sriram was when we first read about the lammergeyer.

While I was at it, I also stumbled upon the Philippine monkey eating eagle! Of course, I am writing Sriram about this!
