Birds of prey are found all over the world. They are predators that catch and eat other animals. Some common birds of prey include eagles, falcons, hawks, ospreys, owls, buzzards, and vultures.
They are usually large and strong. Most have hooked beaks and sharp claws and are excellent hunters. Birds of prey eat a great variety of animals: other birds, insects, fish, rodents, snakes, frogs, or small mammals.
Many birds of prey keep the same mate for their whole lives. They build nests in trees, on cliffs, or on the ground.
