Flores Hawk-eagle, Flores Hawk-Eagle
Nisaetus floris by Kathryn Weisberg(8 in. x 8 in. | Oil on Canvas | ID#3991)
Family: ACCIPITRIDAE | Conservation Status: Critically Endangered | Population Trend: decreasing
The Flores Hawk Eagle is found in lowland as well as upland forests to about 1,600 m and over agricultural land in the vicinity of intact or semiintact forest patches. The population has been calculated to be fewer than 100 pairs. Due to ongoing habitat destruction, the species is thought to be in rapid decline and is critically endangered. The recent (2011) discovery of this, one of the most rare eagles on the island of Alor is good news for the beleagered species.
