Top Ten Coolest Birds of Prey

The Top Ten
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.

even though they are cool and powerful, many other eagles are also capable of killing deer and in fact the crowned and martial eagles have the record of killing the largest prey with their strength only. the golden eagle only killed larger prey because it came in at very high speed. cannot kill orcas or lions

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.

The golden eagle should be the American bird it is more noble, takes down large prey, and is the true symbol of the American wilderness.

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.

The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest animal on the planet plus it's super sharp tallons makes this bird a ruthless killing machine. It's also arguably the most beautiful bird of prey which is why the Peregrine Falcon should be known as the King of birds of prey

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!

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

Red Tailed Hawk

dominates every other bird of prey in its range beside eagles (even these it mobs) and GHO( gho stronger red tail faster more agile fiercer) also strongest and fastest(in stoops) of the hawks.even though it doesn,t look it it's pretty agile and is from the most agile of the buteos its size also can smash through bush and can handle any climate. its like a mini golden eagle and more beautiful too

More beautiful than any falcon and I've seen them do aerobatics that I have never seen before. plus they've got the perfect combination of strength,speed,agility, beauty, and ferocity

Except for the fact that they are prey to Owls, some wild dogs, and Eagles, they r rlly strong

Should most defiantly not be on this list

Harris Hawk

My second favorite bird apart from the awesome sharp shinned hawk (how come they don't have that on here?)

They r awesome to me, they can stand on cactus and they r the only team bird in the world.they live in Arizona and Australia that is one of the hottest places in the world.

The name is very strange

Barn Owl

Second best vision in world
third best hearing in world
silent feathers for stealth

The heart shaped face

Their hearing and eyeshight is unbelievable.

The 2nd best owl.

Harpy Eagle

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

Huge talons! Very large but endangered! Respect these gray feathered hunters
!

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

This is the bird. You know these things are top bird in South America

Burrowing Owl

Burrowing owls are so small they would freak out if a cat came by. They cannot kill a CROCODILE!

Awesome bird they can kill a croc.

Eats thing bigger than it self

Awww! Look up pictures of it going 'DERP'

Great Horned Owl

Eats almost everthing

My favourite LOOK AT THOSE EYES can't believe it's not even 2or 3

White Bellied Sea Eagle

It was mentioned in really wild animals

This eats sea snakes and nearly all fish

Bald Eagle The bald eagle is a bird of prey found in North America. A sea eagle, it has two known subspecies and forms a species pair with the white-tailed eagle.

The bald eagle has gone up a lot I do agree with the number four guy know lets see if we can get it to the top three. why did america pick that bird for the nation because it is pierce and wins war all the time just like america

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.

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.

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

The Contenders
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

It is listed as one of the rarest and powerful bird along with Harpy Eagles and Steller's Sea Eagles. It eats monkeys and other mammals

The royalties of all birds.

Andean Condor

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.

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!

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

Snowy Owl The snowy owl is a large, white owl of the typical owl family. Snowy owls are native to Arctic regions in North America and Eurasia.

Snowy owls are beautiful strong owls and when bonded with a human they are very loyal.

I love snowy owls.

Osprey

The best air to water match

Can see a fish from the sky

Best at hunting it's prey

Why is this so far down?

Crowned Eagle

They are not stronger than a harpy eagle but are still very strong. Other than the Martial, in Africa they are undisputedly the most powerful bird of prey in africa.

These are the most powerful birds... These are the Flying Leopards. And most of all they are stronger than a harpy eagle.

Sparrowhawk

Awesome stuff

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...

This bird is so cool one of the most carnivourouse birds in the world and top of the food chain

Kestrel

These birds are so tiny I bet even a Raven would have defeated it in a fight

They are awesome! They can hover unlike other birds of prey!

They are wonderful bird of preys and they are beautiful!
