About This Group

Raptor group for birds of prey displayed in any medium.
Raptors are hunters, and they're also big, striking birds � the bald eagle is one example of a raptor. The difference between raptors and other birds that also eat animals (like gulls, for example) is that raptors use not only their beaks, but also their curved talons to catch their prey. Before it came to be used for these birds, raptor meant 'abductor,' from its Latin meaning,'robber, plunderer, or abductor,' from rapere, to seize.'
