Birds Of Prey

Definition:

"Bird of Prey, raptor, raptorial bird -- (any of numerous carnivorous birds that hunt and kill other animals)"

 

Facts:

All Birds of Prey possess excellent eye sight and extremely sharp claws. Depending on its species a Bird of Prey may hunt arial game or small mammals, in daylight or at night. Many species are very fast and manouverable, getting to speeds of up to 60mph when in a downward stoop.

 

Birds of Prey used for Bird and Animal Control:
 

  • Eagles 
    Large birds with long, broad wings and massive feet. Booted Eagles have legs and feet feathered to the toes and build very large stick nests.
     
  • Hawks
    True Hawks are medium-sized birds of prey that usually belong to the genus Accipiter. They are mainly woodland birds that hunt by sudden dashes from a concealed perch. They usually have long tails for tight steering.
     
  • Falcons
    Small to medium-size birds of prey with long pointed wings. Unlike most other raptors, they belong to the Falconidae, rather than the Accipitridae. Many are particularly swift flyers. Instead of building their own nests, falcons appropriate old nests of other birds, but sometimes they lay their eggs on cliff ledges or in tree hollows.
     
  • Owls
    Greatly vary in size, typically night-specialized hunting birds. Owls fly with extremely little audible turbulance due to special feather structure and have particularly acute hearing.
