Across from my house there is a tall tree and osprey live on the top. We have seen their chicks (which look like adults but smaller) flying over our house. Osprey’s are big eagle-like birds which have white under bellies under their wings.The osprey is also called the ‘fish hawk’, as it is well adapted for hunting fish. The osprey plunges feet first to snatch them from the water, sometimes becoming completely submerged and a reversible outer toe helps the osprey to carry fish while in flight. One more fact about ospreys is that it is one of the most widespread birds of prey, the osprey is found on every continent in the world except Antarctica.

Thank you for reading my short article on the osprey.
