Hawks, Harriers & Kites of the World

Harriers, kites, and hawks belong to the Accipitridae bird of prey family, which includes about 200 species. These birds are found on all continents except Antarctica. Like all birds of prey, they are apex predators, meaning they have no natural enemies. Members of the Accipitridae family all have hooked beaks and sharp talons to spear and tear their food.
