The osprey - also known as sea hawk, sea eagle, fish eagle, river hawk, and fish hawk - is a large raptor.


It is found near areas of water that provide it ample fish and is located on every continent with the exception of Antarctica.


This was one of two nesting osprey found atop a channel marker in Broad Bay, an inland bay containing brackish water, in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
