To me, the Osprey has some of the brightest beautiful yellow eyes. Osprey should be the state bird of Florida instead of the Northern Mockingbird. I wonder if I could petition to make that happen. I mean, the Northern Mockingbird was designated in 1927 as our state bird. Hmmmm?
Osprey enjoy fresh fish. Sometimes from great heights, they will dive to pluck fish out of the water, shake off a bit and fly away in one fluid movement. Although there are times that they don’t quite get a good grip on their fish at the moment of impact. They may struggle a bit just off the surface of the water until they adjust their find with those powerful talons. Once they have the grip they want, they will fly up into a nearby tree to indulge in their meal. It’s quite sad when they drop their catch after all of that trouble.
