Osprey Diving for Fish
Another one of those Emerald Triangle moments that makes you catch your breath when you see it. The sight of one these large birds diving is awe inspiring.
Ospreys hunt fish almost exclusively so they are mostly found near water. They can use a perch but, as in this video, they mostly hover until they spot their prey. Then they plunge downwards swiftly– capturing a fish about one in four times.
