The Cornell Lab of Ornithology will host a screening of "Bird of Prey" Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. at Cornell Cinema, the Ithaca premiere for the award-winning new documentary about the highly endangered great Philippine eagle. This spectacular bird is the world’s largest and rarest eagle, and fewer than 800 remain today.
The future of these iconic raptors – and an untold number of other species – is tied to the fate of the Philippines’ last fragments of old-growth forest. Will conservation efforts be enough to save this majestic species from winking out?
The Cornell Lab’s Eric Liner directed the film and will be at the screening to answer questions.
