  Birds of prey  
 
Many species of birds may be considered partly or exclusively predatory, however in ornithology the definition for "bird of prey" has a narrower meaning:   birds that have very good eyesight for finding food, strong feet for holding food, and a strong curved beak for tearing flesh, most birds of prey also have strong curved talons for catching or killing prey. Birds of prey are also known as raptors, "raptor" is derived from the Latin word raper, meaning to seize or take by force.
