Western Osprey

Pandion haliaetus


This osprey pair has taken over a tall dead palm. At least one of them has been observed bringing food back to this location. A possible nesting site. I expect this will be preferable to the lights at the ball field. (Although, I have not checked to see if that pair is still at that location.)


Widespread throughout the Americas depending on time of year. A year-long FL resident. They are found near water as they mainly eat fish.


The osprey is protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
