Osprey ( Fish Hawk )

The osprey or fish hawk is a common summer resident around Newfoundland coasts. It is frequently seen fishing in the ocean, large rivers, lakes and ponds. Hovering high above the water, the osprey will drop 100-200 feet and catch its prey in it's razor sharp talons. The osprey's diet consists mainly of fish such as small flounder, tomcod, trout and salmon. I spotted this osprey near it's nest on the road to the ferry on Change Island.
