Philippine hawk eagle (Nisaetus philippensis)

I see many people. Why are there so many people?

What are you looking at?

Don’t you know it’s rude to stare?

Oh.  What?  Me?  Really?  Awesome? Did you guys hear that?

Hear what, Hawk?

Somebody just said that  I   AM   A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

Serpent  eagle (Spilornis holospilus)

Sorry, I did not, Hawk. I was busy looking for snakes.  Did you Old Wise Owl?

Eagle owl (Bubo philippensis)

Hmmm. Let me see. I can’t see from all this bright light.

‘Don’t rush me. I’m thinking!’ (I liked being called ‘wise’ by the way. But did you have to say ‘old’? Ageists!)

Ok, positive. I heard it! 

Oh, no!  I’m so embarrassed. Now I’m shy! I’m so sorry.

After having been humbled by his arrogance and indifference to people, the hawk eagle has finally learned to become friendlier. He now humors people with a pose that highlights his awesomeness. Get it on, paparazzi! Whoa!
