Bald Eagle

The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is the only eagle unique to North America. The sexes are identical in plumage, but females are about 25 percent larger than males. Once paired, bald eagles remain with each other until one mate dies, then the surviving bird will find another mate. An eagle’s eye is almost as large as a human’s, but its sharpness is at least four times that of a person with perfect vision. Bald eagles live along the coast and on major lakes and rivers where they feed mainly on fish.

Great Horned Owl

The great horned owl (Bubo virginianus), also known as the tiger owl (derived from early naturalists’ description as the “winged tiger” or “tiger of the air”) or the hoot owl, is a large owl native to the Americas. It is an extremely adaptable bird with a vast range and is the most widely distributed true owl in the Americas. Its primary diet appears to be rabbits and hares, rats and mice and voles, although it freely hunts any animal it can overtake. The great horned owl’s song is normally a low-pitched but loud ho-ho-hoo hoo and can last for five to four syllables.

Red Tailed Hawk

The red-tailed hawk is a bird of prey. The red-tailed hawk occupies a wide range of habitats and altitudes, including deserts, grasslands, forests, agricultural fields and even urban areas. The red-tailed hawk displays sexual dimorphism in size, with females averaging about 25% heavier than males. At times great horned owls compete with the red-tailed hawk for nest sites, and each species has been known to kill the young and destroy the eggs of the other, but in general, both species nest in adjacent or confluent territories without conflict.

Osprey

The osprey (Pandion haliaetus) — also called fish eagle, sea hawk, river hawk, and fish hawk — is a diurnal, fish-eating bird of prey. It reaches more than 60 cm (24 in) in length and 180 cm (71 in) across the wings. The osprey and owls are the only raptors whose outer toe is reversible, allowing them to grasp their prey with two toes in front and two behind. This is particularly helpful when they grab slippery fish. The adult male can be distinguished from the female by its slimmer body, narrower wings and weaker or non-existant breast.

Kestrel

The name kestrel (from French crécerelle, derivative from crécelle, i.e. ratchet) is given to several members of the falcon genus, Falco. A Kestrel is known to hover at a height of around 10–20 metres (35–65 ft) over open country and swoop down on prey, usually small mammals, lizards or large insects. Kestrels are bold and have adapted well to human encroachment, nesting in buildings and hunting by major roads. Kestrels do not build their own nests, but use nests built by other species.
