_MG_0061 Osprey Pair

The osprey pair are just off Fort Island Trail and enjoy a great nesting location near the inlet.

In the Chesapeak Bay the Ospreys hovered in mid air and then targeted a fish and then dove on it. The ospreys in Florida are rarely seen hovering they spot the fish and just dive on it!
