Humans are terrible at judging size and most often overestimate. We lack the ability to remember things like comparing surroundings and looking for specific details because we tend to not use our senses to the extent we could be.
Odds are that the subject is much smaller than believed. However, it would be great if you could give us some useful details other than the general stuff you've mentioned. Were there mangos in the tree? Did you compare a mango to the size of the subject? Could the flowing part have been feathered? What colors did you see? How did the subject hang onto the tree? Did it have legs? Was it crouching? How close were you to it? Did anyone else see it? Did you have a cell phone with you? If so, why no photo? Did it just sit there or did it take off at some point? Were you clear minded, meaning, having not imbibed any substances or alcohol?
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now. Dylan

"Charles Lindbergh, best known for crossing the Atlantic alone and without stopping in 1927, was fascinated by this eagle. As a representative of the World Wildlife Fund, Lindbergh traveled to the Philippines several times between 1969 and 1972, where he helped persuade the government to protect the eagle. In 1969, the Monkey-eating Eagle Conservation Program was started to help preserve this species." http://en.wikipedia....pine_Eagle#Diet
