A Day At The Beach For The Osprey…

A Day At The Beach For The Osprey…

Today I went to the beach… while I was there trying to find some loons, I happened upon an Osprey eating a large fish.

The Osprey is a great fisherman! This was a good size fish that he managed to catch and he was giving me the evil eye making sure I wasn’t coming anywhere near his meal!

They will fly slowly over water, hovering when they spot a fish, then they plunge down feet first and grab the fish with their talons…

After I was standing nearby taking some photos of the Osprey, he decided that I was a little too close for comfort and took off to find a quieter spot to eat his meal…

The fish is almost as long as the Osprey!
