Eagle is the common name that is used for many large birds of prey of the family Accipitridae. Eagles belong to several groups of genera that are not all closely related to each other. There are 60 species of eagles that come from Eurasia and Africa. Outside this area, there are just 14 species that can be found to include two in North America, with nine eagle species found in Central and South America, and three eagle species in Australia. Eagles are a large, and powerfully built bird of prey, who have heavy heads and beaks. Even the smallest of eagle species to include the booted eagle is comparable in size to a common buzzard or a red-tailed hawk. These eagles have longer and more evenly broad wings, along with a more direct, faster flight despite the reduced size of their aerodynamic feathers. Most eagle species are larger than any other raptors except for some vultures. There are, however, a few species of Eagles who may target prey that is considerably heavier than themselves. Usually, this sort of prey is too heavy to fly with. So the eagle will either eat the prey at the site of the kill or take it back in pieces to its perch or nest. Both golden eagles and crowned eagles have killed ungulates that have weighed up to 66 pounds, and a martial eagle has even killed an 82-pound duiker, which is about seven to eight times heavier than the preying eagle was.

Like all birds of prey, eagles have very large, hooked beaks that are used for ripping flesh from their prey, along with strong, powerful talons and muscular legs. The eagle's beak is typically heavier than that of most other birds of prey. Eagles' also have unique eyes that are extremely powerful. An eagle's eyes have up to 3.6 times that of human acuity for the martial eagle, which allows the eagle to spot potential prey from a very far distance. The keen eagle's eyesight is primarily attributed to their extremely large pupils who help the bird to ensure minimal diffraction or scattering of the incoming light. The female eagle of all known species of eagles is larger than the male eagle. Eagles will normally build their nests, which are called eyries, on high cliffs or in tall trees. Many species of eagles lay only two eggs, but the older, larger eagle chicks frequently kill the younger sibling once it has hatched. The dominant eagle chick tends to be a female, as they are bigger than the male. The eagle parents take no action to stop the killing.
