There is something truly impressive and awe-inspiring about birds of prey that makes us stop for a moment and pay attention to their every movement. Some people are probably terrified of being attacked by these massive birds, what with their sharp talons and elongated beaks, but other people simply see them as beautiful winged creatures. Regardless, these are the mightiest flying birds in the entire world. Here are ten impressive birds of prey we can’t help but admire.
The Martial Eagle is the biggest eagle currently living in Africa. They have an impressive wingspan of 2.6 meters and can weigh a hefty sum. The bird is recognized by their spotted bellies, which makes them appear rather innocent. However, they are an aggressive predator known to feast on lion cubs.
The Steller’s Sea Eagle is a relative of the American Bald Eagle, albeit a little known one. The bird of prey is only found throughout Russia and Japan, and mostly feeds on fish, but has been witnessed attacking cranes, swans, and even young seals.
