Difference Between Eagle and Falcon

Eagle vs Falcon

Both falcons and eagles belong to the Falconiformes Order. But falcons belongs to the Falconidae family, and eagles belong to Accipitridae family. It is very easy to differentiate between eagles and falcons.

Eagles are more robust than falcons. The eagles catch their prey by grabbing and then crushing it with its talons. When compared to the falcons, the eagles have strong talons. It is said that a Steppe Eagle can crush a wolf’s skull with its talons. The falcons dive and hit the prey suddenly giving the prey a surprise. Another difference that can be seen is that the falcons have tomial tooth whereas eagles do not have this.

In comparing the wings, falcons have long and pointed wings whereas the eagles have broad and rounded wings. There is also a difference in the eye color between the two. While falcons have black or very dark brown eyes, eagles have different eye colors.

Another feature of the eagles are its prominent eyebrow-like ridge above the eyes. This is not seen in falcons. While eagles have a broad-chested body, falcons have a slim body. Unlike the falcons, the eagles are built heavy and strong.

When comparing the nature of these two, the eagles are very aggressive. On the other hand, falcons are not aggressive but have a pleasant character.

There are about more than 60 eagle species and are largely found in Africa, Eurasia Canada, United States, Central/South America, and Australia. There are more than 30 falcon species, and they are spread in Europe, North America, and Asia.
