Raptors! Kings of the Sky

Episode 1 of 1

Raptors are majestic birds. With razor-sharp talons, keen vision and a curved beak that's sharp as a knife, raptors are truly "Kings of the Sky." Found on six of the Earth's seven continents, raptors range in size from the very small, such as the falconet that stands just a few inches tall, to the huge Andean condor with a wingspan of more than 10 feet. But as humans increasingly encroach on their natural habitat, raptors are being forced to adapt to a changing world. While some hawks have adapted reasonably well to city life with its abundant high perches, extra water and prey, city life also poses deadly risks. Electrocution and fatal collisions with cars and windows have taken their toll. The documentary RAPTORS! KINGS OF THE SKY explores the intersection of humans and raptors in the wild and in cities, and asks, what challenges does modern society present to them and what can be done to save them?
