Coming In Low And Fast
Last week I was watching this osprey as it hunted for fish above the marsh pond. Often the osprey will dive almost straight down feet first into the water in it’s attempt to snag a fish. This one though, tried a slightly different technique…coming in low and fast just above the surface of the water torpedo bomber style.
By the time the osprey came out of the water and I managed to catch back up with the bird as it was gaining altitude further across the pond… I could see it caught no fish on this attempt. Still, the technique appeared to be a solid method that I’m sure will result in many successful catches for this amazing bird of prey.
