Animal of the day – 4/8/2011 – The Osprey

The Osprey

The animal of the day is the Osprey aka the Fish Eagle. (Did you know:  Like many birds, ospreys mate for life!

After they catch a fish, ospreys rotate them so that they face into the wind, thus cutting down on the drag as they fly off!

Ospreys are found everywhere in the world except for Antartica (stupid penguins are the only bird found down there)!
