Birds in East Africa
Birdwatchers from all over the world visit East Africa in search of the region’s 1400 species of birds, an astounding number by any measure and including birds of every shape and colour imaginable. East Africa has nearly 100 species of hawks, eagles, vultures and owls. More than 40 species have been spotted within a single park, making these some of the best places in the world to see an incredible variety of birds of prey.
A bird of prey, predatory bird, or raptor is any of several species of bird that hunts and feeds on mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, rodents as well as other birds and other animals. The term raptor is derived from the Latin word rapere, meaning to seize or take by force. Birds of prey have keen vision that allows them to detect their prey during flight, as well as powerful talons and beaks. They have very good eyesight for finding food, strong feet for holding food, and a strong curved beak for tearing flesh.
