"Birds of prey are birds that hunt for food primarily via flight, using their keen senses, especially vision. They are defined as birds that primarily hunt vertebrates, including other birds. Their talons and beaks tend to be relatively large, powerful and adapted for tearing flesh. The term "raptor" is derived from the Latin word rapere (meaning to seize or take by force). Because of their predatory lifestyle, often at the top of the food chain, they face distinct conservation concerns."
