One of these predators is the steppe eagle (Scientific name: Falco mexicanus), a bird that has a hunting speed of up to 90 km/hour. Blue-necked ducks (weighing about 0.72 – 1.6 kg) are great prey for this bird (weighing only about 0.42 – 1.1 kg).
That’s why it’s so hard to beat the victim on the ground, the scissors have chosen to hit the speed to knock the duck out first and then tackle the prey. In the wild, mallards, squirrels, rabbits, mice… are the favorite prey of prairie eagles.
