Question No. 8: Do eagles have a good sense of sight?


The eagle is the most majestic of all birds


Oh yes! Eagles have a remarkable sense of sight. The eagle eye is among the strongest in the animal kingdom, with an eyesight estimated at 4 to 8 times stronger than that of the average human being! An eagle is said to be able to spot a rabbit from 2 miles (3.2 km) away.


Did you know? Although an average eagle weighs only 10 pounds (4.5 kg), its eyes are roughly the same size as those of a human.
