Secretary bird (Sagittarius serpentarius)
Secretary birds have a specific home range (van Perlo 1995) of about 3 km2 but the species is known for moving long distances in search for food.
It hunts by foot (Williams & Arlott 1992; Zimmerman 1999) and feeds on rodents, large insects and various reptiles (Williams & Arlott 1992). Snakes however only make up a small portion of their diet.
