The Osprey Is: The Great Fisherman

The Osprey Is: The Great Fisherman

The Osprey

These very large birds used to classified with other hawks, but now they are in a separate family all on their own. Considered a fish-hawk since that is all they eat. I often see them hovering over the water, then they plunge feet-first to catch the fish in their talons. Bald Eagles have been seen chasing the Ospreys forcing them to drop their catch!
