BiologyIt has been argued that the Philippine eagle-owl's striking resemblance to the Asian fishing owls (Ketupa spp.), and the fact that it is seemingly always found near water, suggests that at least some of its prey is likely to be hunted from rivers and lakes (6). However, the bird's large and powerful feet are more reminiscent of species that feed on small mammals and birds (5) (6), and more research is certainly needed to better understand this owl. No breeding information is as yet available except that an immature was collected in May and young birds were seen in April 1993 at an unspecified locality (6).
