A friend sent me an incredible video of osprey on “fishing” excursions. I’ve attached below the link including comments by my friend.
This is truly an incredible video.
This Osprey got 5-6 fish at a time, then got a flounder under 3′ of water, and then made off with what looks to be a 5+ lb. steelhead. This bird shakes water off like a dog does.
There are 3 sequences in this one video:
1st sequence he catches half a dozen fish in one strike.
2nd sequence he plunges talons into deep water right to the bottom to grab his prey.
3rd sequence he captures a big old fat fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does!
This is breathtaking to watch… enjoy!
