Eagles are Birds of Prey, found mainly in mountainous areas throughout Azeroth. The eagle is a national emblem for both the human nations of Alterac (a single-headed version) and Lordaeron (both a single[1] and a mythical twin-headed version[2]).

These birds of prey inhabit nearly every terrain and climate, though they all prefer high, secluded nesting spots. A typical eagle is about 3 feet long and has a wingspan of about 7 feet. They are diurnal birds of prey. Eagles dive at prey, raking with their powerful talons.[9]

  • Giant Eagles are described in appendix three of the monster manual, where the humans use them as mounts.
