Pandion haliaetus


Also known as the Fish Hawk (or one could say "Seahawk" lol), due to its diet, which consists primarily of fish. The Osprey is the sole member of the monotypic genus Pandion, which makes it rather distinctive among raptors. Ospreys can be quite vocal when two or more birds are present.

Is the Osprey your favorite bird? It should be.
