Both eagles and falcons are majestic birds, and when they are in flight, it is breathtaking. The most impressive attribute they possess is their strength. Falcons are birds of prey, and they have long feathery wings and a prominent beak. Eagles are larger, and the distinctive bend in their beak allows them to break their prey’s neck swiftly. Eagles are best known for their larger size, as well as their ability to swoop down and snatch up a small animal as a food source.

The eagle is one of the most recognizable birds. Their body and wings are dark brown, and their head and tail are white. Falcons are medium in size, and they have long, pointed wings with gray on their upper and back sides. They also have black and brown bears on the body and blue colored eyes. Their feet have different colors, ranging from green to yellow. They also have a sharp, hooked beak. There are over 30 species of a falcon and over 60 eagle species.
