Identify this bird

I am sometimes known as the American …. I am a Neotropical species of my type. I am the only member of the genus Harpia. I am the largest and most powerful raptor found in the Americas. I usually inhabit tropical lowland rainforests.

My name references the harpies from Ancient Greek mythology. These were wind spirits that took the dead to Hades, and were said to have a body like an eagle and the face of a human.

I am one of the largest birds of my type. There is only one bird of my type, in the Philippines, that is the only living similar bird to surpass me in size.
