I don't know how to embed a video, so I am including a link. Some of this footage is outrageous. What an incredible animal.

I knew before viewing the vid that if Gary Freed thought it was good, it was gonna be GOOD.

I have grown so ho-hum about ospreys, since they are like starlings around here. The video did much to re-ignite my admiration for this bird.

Notice how they orient the prey fore & aft during flight ... to make things
more aerodynamic. I have watched the parents train their offspring how to fish. They catch-on pretty fast. When they nail their first fish they are very proud of themselves, and let the world know (vocally) in no uncertain terms.

Thanks, Todd.
