Osprey at the Dinner Table by mbrutus

Osprey at the Dinner Table

Having caught a substantial size fish from the nearby lake at the Wildlife Preserve, Ollie the Osprey has adjourned to the dinner table (In this case, a large wooden platform mounted about a telephone poll to enjoy his sashimi repast. I have pictures of the fish dangle down from the platform, but imagined such images might not be to everyone's tastes.
A gentle thought for us thank you! Super to get this close to this amazing prey bird with his fluffy underside feathers!

@maggiemae Thank you. The ospreys are far from easy to catch, but easier than some because they tend to perch in trees besides the lake while they are scanning for their prey. And then they perch too while they eat it.

It amazes me how strong they are - that's a wonderful catch of him after he's enjoyed his dinner.

Nice shot!. I'm a big osprey fan. Ours have headed south for the winter.

Welcome back! Nice picture. I think we don't have those birds here. Fav

I might be in the minority but I'd love to see the fish dangling down. But if I have to make do with this magnificent shot, that's fine by me. We have these birds here (in Australia) as well and there's a nest close by that I've been watching. (I've posted a couple of shots in my album). This is a great capture. Fav. and follow.
