Raptor - Birds of Prey Photos
While many songbirds and water birds are also predators, ornithologists classify those birds with exceptional eye sight or hearing abilities paired with stong taloned feet and a curved beak optimally shaped for tearing flesh as raptors or birds of prey.
Except where otherwise noted in the keywords (rare exceptions), all photos in this gallery depict wild & free birds of prey.
If you want to see an individual photo larger, click on the thumbnail for that photo. While viewing the photo, mousing over the left edge of the photo will present additional options. To see a photo even larger, and with "the lights dimmed," click on it again. While the "lights are dimmed," you can advance to the next photo by using the page advance button on the far right side of the screen or go back to a previous photo by using the page back button on the far left. To exit the "dimmed lights" mode, click the gray X in the upper right corner.
