Raptors are also known as “Bird of Prey”. They are not a natural animal family, but they are grouped together because they share a similar trait: hunting for prey with their talons.
There are five families of Raptors:
- Accipitridae: Hawks, Eagles, Buzzards, Harriers, Kites and Old World Vultures
- Pandionidae: Osprey
- Sagittariidae: Secretary-bird
- Falconidae: Falcons, Caracaras and Forest Falcons
- Strigiformes: Owls
