The Philippine Serpent Eagle (Spilornis holospilus) is an eagle found in  the major islands of the Philippines. It is sometimes treated as a race  of the Crested Serpent Eagle (Spilornis cheela). This species is  usually found in forest clearings, open woodlands, and sometimes in  cultivated lands with scattered trees.

It is endemic to the Philippines. The species is found on most part of  the major islands, except for Palawan. It inhabits primary and secondary  forest. The bird is often seen soaring over clearings and river  valleys. The bird feeds on amphibians, reptiles and other live prey. The  Philippine serpent eagle is distinguished from other species of serpent  eagle by more well-defined spots on the underpants and wings.
