Osprey seen at Cascade Locks, Oregon

Osprey seen at Cascade Locks, Oregon

Osprey in flight.  The Ospreys leave Oregon for the winter and return mid March.  This bird summers around Fairview Lake and has become very friendly and easy to photograph as he/she flies above my deck and literally does eye contact.

Bald Eagle vs. Osprey..."Bald Eagles routinely harass Ospreys and steal their fish.

Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) One of the most widespread birds of prey, the #Osprey is found on every continent in the world except Antarctica. The osprey is also called the 'fish hawk', as it is well adapted for hunting fish. A reversible outer toe helps the osprey to carry fish while in flight. Hunting almost exclusively for live fish, the osprey plunges feet first to snatch them from the water, sometimes becoming completely submerged. #BirdsofPrey
