- found: Wikipedia, Mar. 21, 2008 (A Bird of Prey, or Raptor, is a bird that hunts for food primarily on the wing, using its keen senses, especially vision; the talons and beaks tend to be relatively large, powerful and adapted for tearing and/or piercing flesh. Diurnal birds of prey traditionally belong to the order Falconiformes; the New World vultures (in order Ciconiiformes) are usually also regarded as birds of prey; nocturnal birds of prey - the owls - are not classified with either of the aforementioned taxa but are instead considered to be members of two extant families - the Strigidae (typical owls) and the Tytonidae (barn and bay owls) - of the order Strigiformes)
