Eagles were large, majestic birds of prey that were often seen as symbols of nobility or as divine messengers.
They were generally larger than other birds, with a powerful build and heavier head and beak. They possess broad wings allowing for faster flight. Eagles weighed between 8 and 15 pounds with an average wingspan of 7 feet.
Eagles build their nests on tall trees or high cliffs. These nests were called eyries.
Eagles hunted their prey from the sky using their enhanced vision, which enabled them to see small animals from great distances away. They captured food with their long talons and powerful beaks.
