Description

An Osprey, Pandion haliaetus, comes in for a landing just above its nest bringing another stick to build up the nest bowl. (Typical wingspan is 59-71 inches.) The Osprey is the only hawk that eats almost exclusively live fish and is found nesting near to water. They utilize the same nest site for generations adding new material each season. The nest bowl can grow up to 10-13 feet deep and 3-6 feet in diameter, easily big enough for a human to sit in. The male is the one who typically adds most of the nest material while the female arranges it.
