You know what birds are completely mind-blowingly awesome? Harpy Eagles. These eagles hunt in the thick rainforests of South America and their giant talons are strong enough to crush the skulls of monkeys. MONKEYS. They also have these deep, dark eyes set in a pale gray face which makes them look even more badass, and then, of course, that majestic crest.
