Birds of prey, or raptors are specifically suited to their lives as hunters. Their strong legs and powerful grasping feet with sharp talons help them catch and kill prey. Hooked bills help tear the meat. Hawks, falcons, eagles and owls are an important part of the balance of nature because they help keep insect and rodent populations in check.
The winter is a good time to look for a variety of raptors. Northern harriers fly over the salt marsh and fields. Look for the eastern screech owl sitting in the hole of a wood duck box. Bald eagles, red-tailed and Cooper's hawks can be spotted on tree branches.
