The crowned eagle is a mighty bird of prey with broad wings, pale gray plumage and a distinct crest on its head. It occurs throughout central South America in both forest and semi-open areas. Like many birds of prey, the crowned eagle is endangered because of habitat loss. As top predators, they are also vulnerable to toxins present in their prey animals, and are subject to harassment by humans who perceive them as a threat to farm animals.
IUCN Status:Endangered Major Threats: Habitat loss, persecution and toxins present in prey animals Habitat: Open woodland, marshland, savanna and scrub Location: Central South America Diet: Birds, medium-sized mammals and reptiles
