      If only the PH eagle is not extremely endangered, I would love the PH and Bald eagles fight though I already know which one will win.

    How do you do your force rankings? In this battle you say the Philippine is stronger and more powerful, but you have the Baldy listed as a 4 in force and the Philippine a 3.

    The battle between the two of the most powerful birds in the world?

    Bruh, look up the Australian Wedge Tailed Eagle. It would eat these 2 alive.

  3. ThePersonWhoNeverLies

    Ya. I did a report on the Wedge Tailed Eagle, it would eat those 2 i****** Birds with no problem.

    HA wow, Bald Eagle all the way, I’d be surprised if it was even close. This would be an aerial dogfight, people. Therefore, agility is paramount. As the Philippine Eagle preys on large shit on the ground, it typically just drops in and kills it. In the air, baldie would get the advantage, as it’s hunt requires more acuity and skill.

    Forget the fight!! I wonder how the two would come if combines for breeding and experimental studies? You never know, although I have seen one particular eagle like bird in the Philippine island and is called “lawin”. She has the white feathers on her head going to neck just like the American Eagle and I believe also the tail (not sure on rail. With the body color of the Philippines eagles. She was beautiful but short and about 15″ in legnth and about 7″ in width.

    There is no real biological comparison here.. you guys just boosted bald eagle specs because it’s very popular around the world, because of USA movies and everything

    Bald eagle have no chance against PH eagle, neither against australian wedge tailed eagle or rainforest harpy, the only 2 birds of prey that can be compared to PH eagle.

    1. Zachay4

      I believe a phillippine eagle can kill a bald eagle in just 55 secs because they have a manevrable body more like a hawk and can hunt down real cow and chase small sparrows through dense forest and catch it and never cheat on ther partner and is more intelligent than bald eagle because they hunt in pairs to catch dangerous and aggressive prey and is immune to the Philippine cobra venom which is the third most deadliest snake venom so there PH eagles can wipe out every bald eagle

    I like the Bald Eagle , besides the filppy pidgin has a toupee on and looks generic.

  8. Joey

    I think it will depend on whose territory they will be fighting that will impact the result of who will win between the two. but if you let them fight in a contain area with no environmental advantage just an enough room for them to fight the PH eagle would win due to size and talon force

  9. TexasPet

    I’m with Crocidile lover123, I like crocodiles i think the crocodile will win.
