ANIMAL FACTS - Raptors
Acrobatic display flights herald breeding between Wedge-tailed Eagles. These acts are quite an amazing spectacle, where the male begins by diving down at speed at the female and can include the two doing a loop the loop.
Raptors are identified as Birds of Prey that capture their food using their feet. They have three distinguishing features:
- large talons (or claws) used for hunting
- very keen eye sight to target prey
- sharp hooked beak for the tearing up of prey once caught
