Ni­co­las be­lieves that the Philip­pine ser­pent ea­gle’s at­ti­tude dif­fer­en­ti­ates it from other species of birds. She con­sid­ers her­self lucky to have found her ser­pent ea­gle, be­cause he con­tin­ues to stay kind to peo­ple, “kahit hindi namin siya nailal­abas for months, min­san years siyang hindi namin nae-ex­pose sa mga tao (even if we don’t let him out for months, even years of not be­ing ex­posed to peo­ple).”

Peo­ple have likened her ser­pent ea­gle to a chicken be­cause of his sweet na­ture. “Hindi siya yung usu­ally ag­gres­sive at usu­ally magni-nip na (He isn’t the usu­ally ag­gres­sive type who would usu­ally nip at hu­mans).”
