Accipitridae is an animal family in the Accipitriformes, birds with small to large sizes, bent beak as a morphological adaptation for food, prey on insects to mammals, carrion and some eat fruit, found on all continents and a number of island groups in the oceans with several migratory species.

Accipitridae has well-known members including hawks, eagles, kites, harriers and vultures. The sizes and shapes vary with a length of 23-120 cm, a weight of up to 14 kg and a wingspan of 39-300 cm. Most have sexual dimorphism in size with larger females.

Dlium Accipitridae


Beak strong and bent. Bird hunter species generally have a long and skinny shape, whereas species that hunt large mammals have thicker and stronger tarsi, whereas snake eagle tarsi have thick scales to protect against bites.

Fur rarely has bright colors, mostly using a combination of white, gray, buff, brown and black. In many species, juveniles have very distinct, species-like fur that are not too dangerous to deceive prey.

Accipitridae have legendary vision abilities. Some eagles have up to 8 times better vision than humans. Large eyes with two foveae provide binocular vision to assess movement and distance. Hearing can be used to find prey hidden in vegetation. Accipitridae generally have a poor sense of smell.
