The Woodward's eagle (Amplibuteo woodwardi) is an extinct species of eagle that lived in North America and the Caribbean during the Late Pleistocene. It is one of the largest birds of prey ever found, with an estimated total length 125.6 to 140.2 cm (49.4 to 55.2 in), and considerably larger than any living eagle. The Haast's eagle reached similar lengths but appears to have been both somewhat more robust and shorter-winged than Woodward's, as Haast's was a forest-dwelling species. Woodward's eagle appeared to have hunted in open habitats, taking primarily small mammals and reptiles.
