Birds & Alligators | Birds-of-prey

Birds of prey (Raptors) are birds that hunt for food primarily on the wing, using their keen senses, especially vision. They are defined as any bird that hunts other animals. Their talons and beaks tend to be relatively large, powerful and adapted for tearing and/or piercing flesh. In most cases, the females are considerably larger than the males.
Owls, eagles, hawks, kites, vultures, harriers and falcons are all birds of prey.
Many species of Raptor are endangered due to the use of pesticides and other threats to their natural environment.
