Any large, rapacious bird of the Falcon family, esp. of the genera Aquila and Haliæetus. The eagle is remarkable for strength, size, graceful figure, keenness of vision, and extraordinary flight. The most noted species are the golden eagle (Aquila chrysaëtus); the imperial eagle of Europe (Aquila mogilnik or Aquila imperialis); the American bald eagle (Haliæetus leucocephalus); the European sea eagle (Haliæetus albicilla); and the great harpy eagle (Thrasaetus harpyia). The figure of the eagle, as the king of birds, is commonly used as an heraldic emblem, and also for standards and emblematic devices. See Bald eagle, Harpy, and Golden eagle.

A variable group (including more than fifty species) of large birds of prey. Two species occur in North America - the bald eagle, our national emblem, and the golden eagle. Both are very large, with long wings typically held flat when the birds are soaring. The bald eagle has a white head and tail when adult; it lives mainly on fish. The golden eagle has a largely white tail when immature; adult birds are brown, with golden hackle feathers. The golden eagle hunts chiefly mammals, such as rabbits and large rodents.

Eagles are large birds of prey which inhabit mainly the Old World, with only two species (the Bald Eagle and Golden Eagle) found in North America north of Mexico, a few in Middle and South America, two (the White-bellied Sea Eagle and Wedge-tailed Eagle) in Australia, and the Philippine Eagle in the Philippine Archipelago. They are members of the bird order Falconiformes (or Accipitriformes, according to alternative classification schemes), family Accipitridae, and belong to several genera which are not necessarily closely related to each other.
In J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional universe of Middle-earth, the eagles are immense flying birds that are sentient, and can speak.
