Osprey - Pandion haliaetus

Osprey, one of our noblest bird species, is also one of the most widely distributed species in the world. After eagles, it is our largest bird of prey. Ospreys are well known among people for the reason that they differ greatly from our other raptors in both appearance and habits. Osprey's diet consists exclusively of fish. It has an extraordinary way of preying its fish by plunging into the water straight from the air.
