Osprey, July 1, 2017

Pickwick, Tennessee, USA, June 25, 2017
The young Ospreys at Pickwick Lake are learning to fly. This one seems to be thinking, "How did I get out here? And how do I get back to Mom and Dad!"

Ospreys, Pandion haliaetus, are large hawks that live on a diet of fresh-caught fish. They are migratory birds, flying from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and the Central American countries. So wherever you live in North America, you have a good chance of seeing them near rivers and large lakes as they move north and then back south again. Their primary breeding areas are along the coasts of the United States and all across Canada.

I hope you have a beautiful week-end!

  1. We see Ospreys all year 'round in south Florida. I'd love to get a good photo of one catching a fish. Usually I hear the splash and by then it is too late!

  2. They are such majestic birds! Love this young one! Hugs!

  3. ...he will need to spread his wings sooner or later.

  4. We see them regularly around here.

  5. Beautiful bird. Have a great day!

  6. Pretty!! So majestic, aren't they?

    I'm late getting to visit with you, holiday company from Colorado, but want to wish you a happy week ahead and thank you for joining us birders at I'd Rather B Birdin'
