Seahawks

For some folks, they know this bird by its nickname (Seahawk) which is a very fitting description as their diet is primarily fish. The birds name is actually an Osprey.

DOL-A-3811
Friends of the Osprey provide great information on this magnificent raptor.
They also provide education to the public, enhance nesting opportunities and work with other environmental groups.

A common name for them here is fishhawk. We have a nest, but it is hard for me to get a photo as we had prevented them from nesting on a boat last year, and they have not forgiven us. I think they are like crows (and perhaps other birds) do not forget a face!
