Osprey Nest

Osprey Nest

The osprey, occasionally called a sea hawk, river hawk, or fish hawk, is a large raptor that is about 24 in/60 cm in length and with a 50–70 in/125–180 cm wingspan. They are the only raptor whos outer toe is reversible, likely to allow for a better grip on slippery fish. They also have scales on their talons and spicules on the underside of their toes to help them grip the fish.

There isn’t a specific location for this photograph. They can be seen in many parts of the state, near or a short distance from larger rivers and from lakes. It is common for farmers, utility company’s, and others to construct platforms for the Osprey, and other large birds, to nest on.
