Winter is a great time for bundling up, exploring Outdoor Oklahoma, and building bird-watching skills! Raptors, or birds of prey, can be found hunting across the state and are a great group of birds to test your bird-watching wings. The term "raptor" can include hawks, eagles, owls, falcons, and sometimes even vultures. They typically have hooked beaks and sharp talons and hunt for meat.
Peering at these birds of prey through binoculars may feel a bit hawkward at first, but you'll have a hoot in no time!
