It's good to have the fish back. For a time I didn't see
many. Last year, back in December the pelicans mostly disappeared and the
ones seen appeared to be quite thin. I had noticed that the tiny minnows
along the shore were missing and when I spoke with a fisherman he said
that hauls were nonexistent and although he went out each day he didn't
think he was making the gasoline his outboard required. That's scary.
Fishermen in my book are to be greatly respected. It's not
an easy life on the water and they not only put food on their tables, but
also fill the grocery stores with fresh seafood as well. They are good
guys and I always wish them well.
So, back to the topic at hand: Does anyone know how an osprey would land with a fish
in its talons? The fish didn't look happy (okay I saw the tail of
the fish flaying) so I'm guessing it was attempting an escape.
I'd love to learn more about these great hunters.
Please share whatever you know about the osprey, and thanks!
