ABSTRACT
Hawk, a bird of prey found in most parts of the world. Hawks belong to the same family as eagles and kites and are closely related to falcons, ospreys, and vultures. They have strong talons (claws) for catching and holding prey while they tear the flesh with their sharp, curved beaks. Hawks have powerful wings and keen eyesight. They are swift fliers and can soar for long periods.
