The Osprey is a large Bird of Prey and its main diet is mostly fish, that’s the reason why this Raptor lives near by the water with plenty of food source. It is always easy to spot an Osprey as it would perch on a bare branch of a tree, or on a tall trunk jotting out of a body of water or near the water. It is also exciting to watch this bird since it likes to display its powerful flying skills by gliding few feet above the water before it grabs its prey with it powerful talons.
We found this very beautiful Osprey at Pak Pli basking under the sun one afternoons, it was blistering hot, windy, and dusty at the same time and yet this Bird of Prey was eagerly waiting for some easy afternoon snack.
