Osprey The Fish Hawk

Osprey are a bird that has always fascinated me. I first started seeing them in Eastern Ontario in the early 2000s. They have now became a very common bird in this region. What I find most interesting about the Osprey is its amazing ability to hover almost perfectly still in midair, then dive into the water to grab a fish. They also make incredible nests which I can only describe as “beaver dens in the sky. These nests are massive at 5 feet across and are piled very high. I have commonly observed Osprey at the Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary. I have also seen them when camping at Charlottenburgh Park in Glengarry County

Here are my favourite pictures I got of Ospreys over the years.
