Learn more about the harpy eagle during "Jungle Eagle" on Nature on Wednesday at 7 pm

Harpy eagles are the most powerful birds of prey in the world, but scientists know very little about them. NATURE enters their secret world with wildlife filmmaker Fergus Beeley and his team of cameramen as they locate a nest and struggle to document the lives of these elusive birds in Venezuela’s Orinoco River jungle. Pictured: Female harpy eagle in nest

The most powerful raptor in the world, the harpy eagle, hides away deep in the South American jungle. Harpy eagles are barely ever seen, let alone filmed. In this extraordinary documentary, our team of cameramen steps into the world of this monkey-eating eagle and even risks injury to obtain intimate pictures of them bringing back large monkeys to the nest. The tables soon turn, however, as one of these massive birds starts following the team.

"Jungle Eagle" on Nature airs on Wednesday, April 24th at 7:00 p.m. on channel 3 and channel 3-1.

"The Great Plow Up" Pt. 1 of Dust Bowl airs on Tuesday, April 23rd at 7 pm

During the decade-long drought that turned the southern Plains into the Dust Bowl, the hardest hit area was centered on Boise City, Oklahoma, in a part of the Panhandle formerly known as No Man’s Land. And the worst storm of all hit on Palm Sunday, April 14, 1935—a day remembered as Black Sunday. Here the storm sweeps over a farmstead on its way toward Boise City.

In the first episode of Ken Burns’s THE DUST BOWL, feel the full force of the worst manmade environmental disaster in America’s history as survivors recall the terror of the dust storms, the desperation of hungry families and how they managed to find hope even as the earth and heavens seemed to turn against them.

"The Great Plow Up" Pt. 1 of Dust Bowl airs on Tuesday, April 23rd at 7:00 p.m. on channel 3 and channel 3-1.
