Default what is the largest animal a hawk or eagle can kill?

I've seen on discovery channels that eagles can easily kill adult kangeroos or sheeps. But I've never seen actually pictures or video doing it.

Is the amazing killing prowless of the eagle just a myth or is it real?

depends on the species of eagle. They are not all the same size or have the same food requirements.

yes, but out of all the eagles, what is the largest prey that has been 100% verified to be taken down.

Stock or modded?

With a neurotoxin coating on their talons an eagle can take down any warm-blodded mammal.

Probably a Blue Whale if one lands in the blowhole and gets stuck

There are some that eat monkeys that are the size of some 10 - 12 year olds. There has been at least one verified case of an eagle carrying off a bear (cub).
