Javanese Eagle
Bird Javanese Eagle (Spizaetus bartelsi) is a species of medium-sized Eagle endemic to (the original species) in Java. This animal is considered to be identical to the coat of arms of the Republic of Indonesia, Garuda. And since 1992, it was set up as endangered mascot of Indonesia.

The first time I saw the bird sighting Javanese-eagle is directly in the middle of 2008 around the surface of the water Reservoir Karangkates in South Malang, East Java. Alas, until now I haven't had the opportunity to witness it for the second time.
Physically, the Javanese-eagle has a prominent Crest as much as 2-4 strands with lenght reaches 12 cm in diameter, hence the Javanese Eagle, also known as Jambul Eagle (the tuft-Java language). Adult body size (from tip of beak to tip of tail) of about 60-70 cm, feathers dark brown  on the back and wings. Carbon dark brown on the breast and streaked with thick dark brown on the belly. The tail is brownish black striped.
When flying, the Javanese-eagle is almost similar to the Eagle (Spizaetus cirrhatus) form of light, but tends to appear more brownish, with the stomach look darker and slightly smaller. The voice sounds high, over and over again, klii-iiw or ii-iiiw, varying between one to three syllables. Or sound high pitched and fast kli-kli-kli-kli-kli-kli-kli. A bit much, his voice is similar to the Eagle's voice even though the difference is quite clear in its tone.
The other picture, highlight the eyes and vision are very sharp, stout, wing wings beaked strong, empowered cruising height, and when silence body muscular and authoritative. The "males" that's the impression that perhaps inspire 12 countries showing the figure of a bird on his flag. With 19 other countries, Indonesia is even wearing a body as a symbol of the country with the mythological bird garuda

The population of birds in the wild is estimated at Java lived 600 tails. World Conservation bodies of the United Nations mengategorikannya endangered.

Based on the latest keterancaman of the IUCN criteria, the Javanese-eagle is listed in the category of Endangered or Threatened (Collar et al., 1994, Shannaz et al., 1995). Through a Presidential Decree Number 4 in 1993 about the Wildlife and national flower, the Government of INDONESIA confirmed the Javanese-eagle as endangered in aerospace.
Eagle Habitat is limited to Java in Java, especially in areas with old-growth forests and wooded hills in the area at the turn of the lowlands to the mountains.
Even today, the habitat of this bird is getting narrowed due to the lack of forest ecosystems resulting from the destruction caused by humans, the effects of global warming, and the impact of pesticides. In West Java, the Javanese-eagle is only found in Radiant Mountain, Mount Salak, Mount Gede Pangrango, Papandayan, Patuha and Mount Halimun.
In Central Java in Java Eagle Mount Slamet, Mount Ungaran, Mount Muria, Mount Merapi and mount Lawu, while in East Java in the Merubetiri, the Baluran, Alas Purwo National Park, Bromo-Tengger-Semeru, Wilis and About HYDROPOWER Dam Karangkates.
