Bird Pic Of The Week

Osprey

(Pandion haliaetus)

Where: Richmond, VA • Pipeline at James River Park

Notes: It is amazing how much expression can carry through from the simplest of actions. The tenacious appearance in this bird was captured as it called to its mate across the river. But this raptor is actually not very aggressive, as it looks like it might be here. This Osprey, formerly known as the Fish Hawk, is well adapted to extracting fish from the river. It either snatches its aquatic prey from near the surface of the water with its fishing hook like talons or completely dives into the water head first. When they spot a fish, they often hover over the water as they position themselves. They wait for the right moment to strike, fold in their wings and speed downwards towards their prey.
