Birds of prey are predatory bird species that have hooked beak, sharp talons, strong feet, and keen eyesight and hearing. They tend to feed on small mammals, birds, insects and reptiles. The South African 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

Owls: small to large; rounded heads; small, hooked bills; forward-facing eyes; can be Crepuscular or 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.
