Birds - Osprey
Class:Aves Order:Falconiformes Family:Pandionidae


Osprey, Pandion haliaetus. Also known as the Fish Eagle, Fish Hawk or River Hawk. These raptors prefer habitats near water. They are dark brown with white-gray bellies and heads. Their wingspan can reach 6 feet across! When seen flying above you, the wing and tail feathers appear to be striped in white. I've only seen the Osprey, or Fish Hawk, near large bodies of water. Their nests are huge.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
