 Osprey mates 💙 of the Outer Banks, NC. 

Ospreys usually mate for life and are sometimes known as #fisheagle #seahawk #riverhawk #fishhawk The osprey is a #diurnalraptor (active in the daytime) #birdofprey #largeraptor #talons 

• •I am so fascinated by these birds! • •
The osprey migrates to South America to winter as a non-breeding migrant and returns home, normally to the place it grows up, to reconcile with his mate and start the cycle all over again. #hunting #catchingprey #coastalbrackishwaters The male remakes his nest in order to impress his mate and to be in her favor. My son and I watched a documentary on birds nesting habitats, how they make them and I was so excited when the documentary covered Ospreys. What fascinating birds they are and who doesn’t love a bird of prey who mates for life! 😉
