A large raptor, reaching more than two feet in length. It’s brown on the upper-parts and predominantly greyish on the head and underparts. They can be seen flying over water, hovering, plunging feet-first, then flying away with fish.
Kristine Rivers offers this tip:
“Formerly known as Fish Hawks, Ospreys feed almost exclusively on live fish, which they catch by diving towards the water feet first. Look for them along Sportsman Road.”
