Description

One of the most visible and exciting group of birds to many people are the raptors. Their grace, speed and power are inspiring.

Raptors are often divided into several groups based on several factors, including size, shape and habits. This app includes information on 54 different species of raptors. Over 200 images are included.

The major groups covered include:

Vultures
Vultures are primarily carrion eaters. 


Eagles
Eagles are perhaps the best known of the raptors. 


Osprey
Often placed in a category of one, the distinctive brown and white Osprey is sometimes called a Fish Eagle.

Kites
Kites are graceful fliers. They tend to have a limited range in the U.S. and their range does not regularly extend as far north as Canada

Harrier
The Northern Harrier is the only harrier species found in the U.S. or Canada. It has long, narrow wings, less pointed than the typical kite, and a long tail.

Hawks are often classified in two groups, accipiters and buteos.

Accipiters
Accipiters are bird hawks; that is they feed on other birds.

Buteos
Buteos are the largest group of hawks. Their broad wings and relatively short tail identify them

Caracara
The Crested Caracara is a unique looking raptor with a long neck and distinctive brown and white color pattern and a very large bill.

Falcons
Falcons are fast, powerful fliers that feed on everything from insects to other birds. They are built for speed with narrow pointed wings and long tail.

Owls
Owls fall into a totally different group of raptors.
