Predatory birds
Birds of prey, also known as raptors, are birds that hunt vertebrates, including other birds, and invertebrates for food. The term "raptor" is derived from the Latin word rapere (meaning to seize or take by force). They have well developed senses especially vision, and large, powerful talons and beaks that aid them in killing and tearing the flesh of their prey. Because of their predatory nature, often at the top of the food chain, they face distinct conservation concerns.
In most cases, the females are larger than the males.
