There are 60 members of the eagle clan, all united by their acute eyesight, broad, powerful wings, sharp talons and hooked beaked. As we explore their world, we’ll see the majestic Harpy eagle of the Amazon bringing a dead sloth to their nest. Slow motion reveals the skill of the African fishing eagle as it snatches prey from the water’s surface. In winter, when competition for food gets tough, the heaviest eagle of all, the Steller’s sea eagle, is hunting around ice floes.
