  • Ospreys are birds of prey, primarily feeding on fish
  • They migrate each year to the Caribbean and South America, leaving in October and returning in March
  • Ospreys nest in tall trees, power poles and man-made platforms (like the one shown above)
  • Ospreys lay between one and four eggs during nesting season which runs from April to July
  • The incubation period for the eggs is between 36-42 days and the nesting period is between 50 and 55 days
