Osprey interesting facts: * Ospreys can dive at 30 miles per hour and have been clocked at 50 miles per hour by the time they hit the water.
*Occasionally, the Osprey may prey on rodents, rabbits, hares, amphibians, other birds, and small reptiles
raptors whose outer toe is reversible, allowing them to grasp their prey with two toes in front and two behind.
Osprey typically take fish weighing 5–10 oz and about 10–14 in in length, but the weight can range from 2–68 oz. Virtually any type of fish in that size range are taken. *Osprey typically lay eggs in April or May. The female incubates them for about a month, all the while fiercely protecting the nest with her mate. *Before the chicks hatch the male Osprey brings in two or three fish per day, after the chicks have hatched they catch up to five fish each day which is enough to feed the whole family
