  Accipitriformes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
In one of the most common of the several ways in which the raptors are classified, the order Accipitriformes includes most of the diurnal birds of prey: hawks, eagles, vultures, and many others: about 225 species in all.
It is not used in classification schemes which regard the Falconidae (falcons and caracas) as part of the same group as the Accipitridae (hawks, eagles and allies).
Where the falcons and their allies are judged sufficiently distinct to be regarded as an independent order, Falconiformes includes only the 60-odd Falconidae species, and the remaining families become part of Accipitriformes.

 Eagles and Falcons
Some species, like the Accipitriformes, kill their victim by ripping its throat; others, such as the Falconidii, kill it by breaking its spinal column.
While eagles and condors are considered by many peoples as symbols of pride and nobility, other Accipitriformes and Falconiformes, as vultures, are perceived negatively and unjustly persecuted, since they are believed to be fierce, bloodthirsty and even filthy.
Accipitriformes and Falconiformes are exhibited in display units 50, 51 and 52, where all the European species are represented.
