The UK Wildlife Trusts define exactly what embodies a bird of prey. They explain that:
“‘Birds of prey’ are large, predatory bird species that have hooked bills, sharp talons, strong feet, and keen eyesight and hearing. They tend to feed on small mammals, birds, insects and reptiles. The UK’s birds of prey come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes:
- Hawks and eagles: medium to very large; hooked bills; rounded or broad wings; sharp talons; tend to soar
- Falcons: small to medium-sized; tapered wings and tails; fast and agile; often hover
- Owls: small to large; rounded heads; small, hooked bills; forward-facing eyes; mainly nocturnal
Our birds of prey live in a variety of habitats, including woodland, farmland and even in cities. Some are easy to spot, while others are much rarer or live in places that are difficult to get to. Either way, seeing a bird of prey can be an awe-inspiring experience as they soar high in the sky, or swoop down with deadly accuracy on their unsuspecting prey.”
