What is a "bird of prey"?

A bird of prey, also known as a raptor, is a predatory bird that is specialized in hunting and killing prey. These birds have strong, sharp talons, a hooked beak, and excellent eyesight, which make them highly effective hunters. They feed on a wide range of prey, including other birds, mammals, fish, reptiles, and even insects. Birds of prey species include eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, vultures, and kites. They are typically characterized by their keen eyesight, powerful wings, and sharp talons that they use to catch and kill their prey. Many birds of prey species are apex predators, meaning they are at the top of the food chain and have few natural predators. They play an important role in maintaining ecological balance and are often considered a symbol of strength and power.
