Osprey caught a fish!


So, I was biking with my birding camera, and I spotted an Osprey sitting on a telephone pole. I got a picture of it. On closer inspection of the photo, I noticed it had a fish in its talons.

Jared, I was amazed at the size of some of the fish that Ospreys were pulling out of the water and flying off with - so I started a thread about it - some true whoppers there - some may even outweigh the bird !
