    Birds of prey typically hunt from the air and prey on mostly vertebrates including other birds. These birds also have good eyesight for catching food, strong feet, and a strong curved beak. The term “bird of prey” only applies to certain families of birds even though some other birds may hunt vertebrates. These families are acciptridae (hawks, eagles, etc.), pandionidae (osprey), sagittarlidae (secretary bird), falconidae (falcons), and cathartiae (condors). Nocturnal birds of prey (owls) are classified as members of two extant families.
