Osprey — the ultimate fisher

An osprey in action
This is an incredible video. I can’t believe this Osprey got 5-6 fish at a time, then got a flounder under 3′ of water, and then made off with what looks to be a 5+ lb. steelhead.   I’ve never seen a bird shake water off like a dog does – wouldn’t want to get in the way of him
when he’s got his eyes locked and his talons in the “load” position!  Its talons are amazing!   There are 3 sequences in this one video: 1st sequence he catches half a dozen fish in one strike. 2nd sequence he plunges talons into deep water right to the bottom to grab his  prey. 3rd sequence he captures a big old fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does!   This is incredible to watch (best viewed in full screen mode-click on bottom right icon)…enjoy!
