Top Ten Birds of Prey

The Top Ten

1 Golden Eagle

Golden eagles have been known to kill deer, sheep/rams, and even wolves. I once saw a video on YouTube of a golden eagle snatching up a kid, but shortly dropped him. People have witnessed them knocking rams off cliffs and later eating them. They have a beautiful plumage and are amazing, powerful birds.

It can dive at over 150 mph. It can squeeze its talons stronger than a lion can bite. It can spot a Rabbit at three miles away. It can pick up an entire full grown goat. The perfect bird of prey. - HarCher

The only bird of prey to kill a deer or a wolf!

I've heared rumors it can kill a lion and it dives up to 200 mph which is not a rumor

2 Peregrine Falcon Peregrine Falcon The peregrine falcon, also known as the peregrine, and historically as the duck hawk in North America, is a widespread bird of prey in the family Falconidae.

The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest animal on Earth and with super sharp talons this bird is a killing machine. It is also the most beautiful bird of prey which is why I believe that this is the best bird of prey.

Really really fast. They are the fastest animal in the world. And they have sharp talons so they are one of the most skillful hunters

Fastest animal in the world when flying vertically

This is the fastest bird in the world and its talons are as big as lynx claws!
and these birds can fly up too 242 miles a hour while golden eagle is only 200! this is a amazing bird of prey, it is capable of taking on a small dog or even a cat maybe a hawk!

4 Harpy Eagle

THIS EAGLE IS KNOWN US BONE CRUSHER. IT CAN KILL A MONKEY WITH IT'S TALONS WHICH ARE LARGER THAN BEAR AND SHARPER THAN BEAR. IT IS THE STRONGEST BIRD IN THE WORLD. - kormo

Talons larger and sharper than a bear! That's what I'm talking about!

They look super cool, with the mix of white and gold, their name alone beats the rest and they have literally kidnapped babies.

It can crush a human skull and snap a human arm

5 Bald Eagle

Amazing bird. Legacy as well. Can take out animals easily in an east swish. Can take out most birds and prey. - NBASuperstar35

Bald Eagles should at least be at number 4 on the list I witnessed with my own eyes one of those almost kill a red tail hawk.

They are an American symbol

I know this animal doesn't deserve the No. 1 spot, but at least give them a chance. At least they should be in the top 3, perhaps number two behind the Golden eagle.

This thing is HUGE! They are a lot bigger than a Golden Eagle, and they are surely large and strong enough to carry a grown man. Not a buff man, just average, lol.

Thanks for the comments people keep em coming and vote for this critically endangered species of bird of prey

Largest wingspan of any Bird of Prey!

Possibly the largest Bird of Prey in the world!

Kings of a carcass!

They are the heaviest flying birds!

15 Philippine Eagle

The Philippine Eagle or Monkey-eating eagle is the world's largest living eagle in overall or total size. According to BBC wildlife award winning cinematographer Neil Rettig they are the most magnificent, marvelous, rarest and most powerful eagles in the world. Their beauty is like a gripping force and there's nothing else like that in the world, he said. According to David Attenborough of BBC the Philippine eagle headdress is a flamboyant crown which outclasses all other eagles in the world and without a doubt they are greatest eagles living in the planet today. They have the broadest wing area of all eagles capable of heavy load flights. It's the only living eagle specie to have a dusky blue-grey eyes and beak which is unique to all other raptors. Famous American Aviator Charles Augustus Lindbergh when fascinated with its beauty, dubbed it as the "World's most Noble Flier". This appreciation comes from a very popular, award winning and experienced environmentalist from all over the ...more

19 Eurasian Eagle Owl

Let me warn you, this owl is strong. If you so research on it, almost all of the Internet would say that it can kill a cat, a small dog, a skunk (very terrible sense of smell), a hawk, a kestrel, an osprey, a kite, a harrier, a buzzard, a deer, a snake, even other owls, and in rare occasions, a fox. There is evidence on YouTube and Google images as well, and if you look up their wingspan, which can be up to six feet, they are way larger than your average "powerhouse," a hawk. They are known to be predators and way better in combat when in a fair fight against any if the animals that I have listed, and they are beautiful, majestic animals that have a lot to do with many cultures and beliefs. When you see their talons, they are longer and sharper looking than a hawks, and I recall someone saying that something scared an owl, it gripped onto the persons arm, and nearly cracked it. Almost every species of owl can kill like that, and if not, about a little bit above 75%, while others can ...more

This place is full of nothing but hawks! Sure, they can symbolize power, and are usually the powerhouses in Disney movies. But are Disney movies real life? No. If you compare a Eurasian Eagle Owl's wingspan, which can reach six feet to a Hawk's you can OBVIOUSLY see that the owl is stronger. And, I have also done a lot if research on owls, and they eat: cats, small dogs, hawks, ospreys, buzzards, kestrels, and kites. They are known to be predators to hawks, and the others the listed, and are smarter, stealthier, and packs stronger, unless the hawks aren't alone! I also found photos on Google images of owls with hawk preys, and when I looked up if owls could eat any of the animals I listed, the majority said DEFINITELY YES, and additionally, they talons are very much stronger, but their beaks are weaker, which doesn't matter because owls or hawks don't use beaks in combat. This is one of the strongest owls, and have been around during the time when Roman troops where warring back in ...more

Same goes for almost all owl species besides the really small ones, with an exception of about a little bit less than half the amount if small owls, since I found a video in YouTube bat a small western screech owl killing a hawk that attacked it -- it was kinda blurry though, so I didn't know the species of the HAWK...

These birds are the Tigers of the Sky.
