Demography and Populations

Little known. The Harpy Eagle usually is considered to be "rare" (Hilty and Brown 1986, Ridgely and Gwynne 1989, Howell and Webb 1995, Schulenberg et al. 2007), but it also is not readily detected (Hennessey et al. 2003) and so its true status in many areas is not well known (Hilty and Brown 1986).
