    Most birds of prey fall into four major categories. (Northern Harrier, Osprey, and kites are a few exceptions.) These are the core attributes for each: Buteos are the large, broad-winged, short-tailed lugs with spare and labored wing beats. Accipiters are small, narrow-tailed forest dwellers with short, rapid, bursting flaps, punctuated by a glide.   A bird of prey, as their name indicates, is any species of bird that hunts other animals such as small mammals, fish, and other birds for food. Birds of prey are commonly referred to as raptors and possess powerful, sharp talons and hooked bills for capturing and eating prey, which distinguish them from other types of birds.

    Discover the majesty of owls, hawks and other raptors in our free-flighted shows. No two shows are alike as different raptors soar overhead and visit guests up close on a trainer’s glove. You’ll be amazed at the grace and strength of these fascinating creatures, and you’ll learn from all . The typical owls are small to large solitary nocturnal birds of prey. They have large forward-facing eyes and ears, a hawk-like beak, and a conspicuous circle of feathers around each eye called a facial disk.
