Is an eagle bigger than a vulture

Adler wanted posters

The demand for an eagle (bird) profile for children is so great that you can find all eagle profiles here. For every real eagle you will find the size, the age, the food, the wingspan, the weight, the occurrence, the breeding season, the breeding period, the number of eggs, the habitat, the enemies, the speed, the characteristics, the differences, the distribution and the nestling duration. About the appearance of the eagles I show you pictures that I took in Germany (Hamburg) and Europe (Spain, Switzerland, Scandinavia). You are looking for information for biology classes. Here you will find all the information in the Adler profile that you need for school in class.

If you are looking for animal profiles for children (e.g. dog, cat, mouse), flower profiles and insect profiles, then visit my pages: Animal profiles for children, flower profiles and insect profiles.

My Adler profiles for children are for projects in kindergarten, district school, high school, university and school for lectures and essays in biology, zoology, in specialist classes, for species profiles, for worksheets and for presentations or an essay in Biology classes very popular. Here you will find key points, features and special features for your profile template (elementary school, secondary school, high school) about birds. My page, Adler Profiles is also used to study for the hunter test in Germany.
There are extra bird pages for preschool and elementary school, e.g. with pictures of chicks or with bird portraits.
