The Osprey is black above and white below with a white head that has a black head stripe and cheek patches. It is also known as the “Fish Hawk”, and was called this in Honduras. The range of the Osprey is almost anywhere in the world, except Antarctica. It has a habitat of rivers, lakes, and coasts. It feeds almost entirely on fish, as can be seen in it’s claw. It hovers over its prey and plunges feet first for the fish, then flies away.
