Raptors

Characteristics of the Different Raptor Families

Hawk Families

Kites
  • Medium-sized raptors which have falcon-like flight appearance, but distinctly different tails.

  • These raptors have long, pointed wings and graceful flight.

  • The toy kites that children love to fly are named after these birds’ ability to “hang motionless” in a steady wind.

  • The hooked bill and snail kite have an exaggerated curve to their beak shape in order to eat snails.
