Raptor Facts

A massive nest builder, they can reach 12-15 feet in height over many years. The very large female is often mistaken for an eagle and in the U.S.A.they are often called this. Having a large gape and feathers to the ankles like true eagles, they also drool (hawks donít drool). They may one day be re classified as an eagle. These birds have been witnessed standing at the burrows of ground squirrels and grabbing them by the snout as they appear!
