OWLS, my favourite, though they are not true raptors, but are here in this section because have some similar feature.

Owls mostly hunt mammals, small birds, frogs etc. and also have some species as fish hunters. They are global Bird of Prey except very dry desert like or freezing cold lands.

Owls have a hawk type beak, ears on front of face which is designed to catch sonic sound waves which they release while hunting. Most birds of prey have eyes on the sides of their heads, whereas the stereoscopic nature of the owl’s forward-facing eyes gives them a greater sense and depth of vision also due to tube shaped eye for low-light hunting. Since their eyes cannot move like most creatures, still they have 270 degree vision as they can rotate their neck.
