I managed to creep upon this one
Love the feathers on this guy/girl!
lol it looks it like is talking to you
This osprey has something in sight...
Ospreys used to be my favorite bird I did a research paper on them in school. This was before I discovered the Harris Hawk (coolest bird of prey ever)
I still prefer ospreys, most falconers here use harris hawks at they are so intelligent and work well in groups.
I hear harris hawks are most popular because of those qualities yeah. I would like to someday get into falconry, but I move a lot with my family so I cannot afford to get the required licenses and a harris hawk only to move somewhere it isn't allowed and get rid of it. That's just not fair to the animal.
Have you heard of Crested Caracaras? They may actually be cooler than Harris hawks.
"dammit,now where did i leave those contacts?!"
*O* Awww Ospreys are so awesome That's a very beautiful shot
