There are 3 ways I see to answer this: For sheer strength involving carrying something and flying: overall, the American Harpy Eagle is probably the strongest - female Harpy Eagles (being larger than the males), weighing around 9 kg (20 lbs), regularly takes prey on the wing that weigh around the same - 9 kg (20 lbs) - and have been know to fly (with difficulty and for short distances) carrying animals weighing over twice their weight 18+ kg (40+ lbs). Certain owls are stronger pound for pound - for instance, although smaller than Eagles, Great Horned Owls routinely fly with weights 3 times their own - a 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs) GHO can lift 7-8 kg (16-17 lbs). And just for completeness; Ostriches, although they can't fly at all, can carry a 150 lb man on it's back and still run faster than human athletes.
