Birds of Prey: Hawks, eagles, kites, vultures, owls, falcons, and seriemas!

Which birds are considered birds of prey?

Hawks, eagles, kites, vultures, owls, and falcons - and now introducing the seriemas!

Posting guidelines:

RULES

1. No solicitation, sales, or bartering.

This is not the place to buy, sell, or solicit goods or services of any kind. This especially applies to birds or their feathers. In the USA especially, attempts to buy or sell wild birds or their parts can easily break federal law.

2. Mark posts NSFW for pictures of injury or death

Most users in this sub are animal fans in general. The NSFW tag should be used to warn the average viewer of possibly disturbing images. Gore, severe injury, and death- especially of birds of prey- should be tagged. Use your best judgement.

3. No witch-hunts

Personal information of others is no bueno. Publicly available information such as news articles are ok to post, but inciting a witch-hunt is unacceptable.

4. Your own personal information

If a person's name, address, or phone number is discernible from a posted link, comment, or photo it will automatically be removed. This is more to protect against accidentally revealing your own identity (such as accidentally posting a facebook picture link). If you are aware and okay, it will be un-removed. Please let the mods know if that is the case and we forget to ask.

5. No memes, image macros, etc.

Note: This only applies to direct links that are posted, to prevent karma-bids. This is a small community that would be easily overrun by memes and past experience dictates most users don't want them here. Post to r/RaptorRage instead.

6. Images and videos must be your own original content, or must link to the source.

Tineye is a good resource for tracking down the original photographer or artist. Posts linking to content that is not your own will be removed unless the source is named in the title or linked in the comments.

She's been sitting in the nest for 3 or 4 weeks straight. I think I'm about to become a proud uncle of some bald eagles. 😆

Most powerful bird of prey? Not just the harpy!?!??!

The harpy eagle is considered the most powerful bird of prey. Following the harpy, the Philippine eagle is often discussed, although there is limited information available about these remarkable birds. Do Philippine eagles have talons nearly as large as the harpy eagle? Literature often mentions the crowned eagle as the next in power after the harpy, even though the Philippine eagle is larger.

Skiddish kestrels

I love these little falcons but damn if they don’t spook SO easily. Still can’t get a decent picture of one but this is not awful.

Red-shouldered Hawk at Celebration Park in Florida [OC]

This red-shouldered hawk in Celebration, Florida, projected such an image of calm self-assurance that the tree seemed more like a stage than a perch!
