True hawks are built for manoeuvrability, speed and agile hunting (short wings, long tail, long legs).

Eagles are built for stamina and power - longer, squarer wings and generally more powerful build.

Have you seen the number of questions posted which could be trivially answered either with a Web search or by reading a dictionary/encyclopedia?  When you post a question that looks like it is part of that crowd, you're more likely to get a "JFGI" answer.
