List of Eagle Species

Eagles are large birds of prey which are members of the bird family Accipitridae and belong to several genera that are not necessarily closely related to each other. Most of the more than 60 species occur in Eurasia and Africa. Outside this area, just two species can be found in the United States and Canada, nine more in Central and South America, and three in Australia.

iNaturalist is another good place to find photographs of biological organisms. You can easily filter for images with specified levels of copyright. This link will get you to a page with observations of genus Haliaeetus in the public domain (copyrights waived by the photographer under the CC0 designation):


To download a photograph, click on the observation, then hover the mouse over the photograph and click on the i symbol to get to the page for that photograph. There you can download the photograph in various sizes (small, medium, large or original). Each observation can have more than one photograph.

For other genera of eagles, replace taxon_id=5303 with

  • taxon_id=5068 for genus Aquila
  • taxon_id=5232 for genus Buteogallus
  • taxon_id=5239 for genus Circaetus
  • taxon_id=5398 for genus Dryotriorchis
  • taxon_id=5385 for genus Eutriorchis
  • taxon_id=5320 for genus Harpia
  • taxon_id=5387 for genus Harpyopsis
  • taxon_id=5148 for genus Hieraaetus
  • taxon_id=5334 for genus Lophaetus
  • taxon_id=5383 for genus Morphnus
  • taxon_id=5343 for genus Polemaetus
  • taxon_id=5156 for genus Spilornis
  • taxon_id=5289 for genus Spizaetus
  • taxon_id=5322 for genus Stephanoaetus
  • taxon_id=5230 for genus Terathopius

For photographs with some copyright restrictions, replace photo_license=CC0 with photo_license= plus any of the following:

  • CC-BY
  • CC-BY-NC
  • CC-BY-SA
  • CC-BY-ND

For bulk downloads, use the export query builder.


In addition to simply searching sources like Google Images or Getty Images, the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) has a gallery feature that allows you to search for images of an organism. Note that (1) images are user contributed, therefore the licensing is determined by the contributor, and (2) are not hosted by GBIF directly. Make sure your use of these images is consistent with the license under which they have been released and that attribution is given when necessary. See some details on how users contribute images to GBIF occurrence data here.
