Difference Between Hawks and Falcons

Falcons have long pointed wings, thick chests and kill with beaks because their claws are weak. Hawks use their claws to kill their prey. Falcons and hawks both have incredible eyesight and are able to spot their prey from long distances.

Falcons use cliffs to nest because the water attracts what falcons like to eat, like blackbirds.
