Opsrey Landing by Geoffrey C Smith.jpg

Osprey

(Pandion haliaetus) This raptor is never found far from water, the Osprey is one of the most widely distributed of all birds. It ranges along all coasts and along the larger lakes and rivers of the continental land masses of the world except for the polar regions, New Zealand and southern South America. The Osprey is also called sea hawk and fish hawk. The Osprey lives entirely on fish it catches alive. It soars in circles over the water anywhere from 50 - 200 feet in the sky until it sights is prey, hovers a moment then plunges feet first to pluck a fish from the water.
