- Most of the 60 species of eagles exist in Eurasia and Africa.
- They have extremely keen eyesight which enables them to spot potential prey from a very long distance.
- Many species lay two eggs, but the older, larger chick frequently kills its younger sibling once it has hatched. The parents take no action to stop the killing.
- The eaglets do not develop adult markings until their third year, when they leave parental protection and seek their own mates and territories.
- Their nests can become enormous, measuring up to ten feet across and weighing well over 1,000 pounds.
