We spent a few days on the boat. My next few posts will probably have some of the wildlife we saw.
On Lake Monroe, I took these pictures of an Osprey nest on one of the channel markers. These markers are a favorite spot for the Ospreys, since they eat mainly fish, and there very few that don’t have a nest on them. They are a very large bird that can have a wing span of 6ft.
When an Osprey catches a fish and flies with it, the fish is facing forward so it’s more aerodynamic and doesn’t slow the flight down. I think the Osprey has outer toes that reverse and this allows it to hold it’s prey that way.
