Eagle is a common name for many large birds of prey of the family Accipitridae; it belongs to several groups of genera that are not necessarily closely related to each other.

Most of the 60 species of eagles are from Eurasia and Africa.<ref>del Hoyo, J.; Elliot, A. & Sargatal, J. (editors). (1994).
