Large Predatory Birds
I have heard that the Golden Eagle and the Great Horned are the
fiercest birds in the world, is that true, or are there really greater
birds than them? And who really is the Greatest Bird?
That is an almost impossible question to answer, since there are different
ways of measuring strength. There are certainly much larger birds than
owls, or even eagles, such as condors and non-predatory birds like
ostriches. Of North American owls, according to the Audubon Encyclopedia
of Birds, snowy owls are heaviest, great horned and snowy the "most
powerful." Bald eagles are the largest resident eagles of N.A., harpy
eagles are the largest in the world.
