    Following the previous thread of Storks, Hamerkop, and Shoebill in North America, the second group I chose to do was the Accipitriformes.

    Using zoo websites and Zoochat, I have compiled together a list of birds of prey housed in North America. All information is at least from June 2016 or newer, most from 2017/2018.
    Due to the number of species, I have only included species that are present.

    If anyone has additions or correction of holders or species please let me know. Also, anyone have information on the species holdings of the World Center for Birds of Prey run by the Peregrine Fund? (Boise)

    I can't believe I forgot this. The NEW Zoo - my home zoo - holds Bald Eagle.

    Bay Beach's Bald Eagle population should be 1.1

    Bay Beach holds 1 female Golden Eagle.

    Toronto also has Steller's Sea Eagle. It also has one eurasian eagle owl if you want to know for later.
