I love raptors, especially eagles. Here are some cool vids I found while tubin'.

This guy hangs out with Stellar's sea eagles. The Stellar's share honors with the harpy eagle as the world's largest. I love the sounds they make!

The Philipine eagle, another giant with a seven-foot wingspan.

Tilly, the golden eagle.

The harpy eagle is the other contender for world's largest. This info is from Nat Geo:
Its talons are longer than a bear’s claws, and it has such a powerful grasp, that it could break a man’s arm or even pierce through his skull if it wanted to. Fortunately, Harpy eagles have never been known to attack humans (unless protecting their nest)

A wedge-tailed eagle, Australia's largest raptor. They can stand 3 /12 feet tall. Watch how he walks!

Schweet! That Wedge Tail Eagle is huge, and looks bigger than the Stellar. 1.2m/4ft avg height?!? I bet it's talon spread is bigger than a grown mans hand. The Philippine is a beauty for sure. Never heard of the others, thanks for sharing.

Peace

Golden eagles get pretty darn big too...

Where I live, the ravens are about half the size of the bald eagles. I've seen 2-3 ravens scare away an eagle from a dumpster. Yep, eagles will eat out of dumpsters.
