Osprey (Pandion haliaetus)

Ospreys are some of the most widespread birds of prey, located on every continent except Antarctica. Found typically near both salt and freshwater, they inhabit a variety of landscapes. Ospreys are supreme fishers. Plunging feet first they pluck live fish from the water's surface, often submerging themselves completely in the process. This skillful manoeuvre is aided by a few key adaptations including oily plumage, big feet and a reversible toe which allows them to carry sizeable fish whilst in flight.
