Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) One of the most widespread birds of prey, the #Osprey is found on every continent in the world except Antarctica. The osprey is also called the 'fish hawk', as it is well adapted for hunting fish. A reversible outer toe helps the osprey to carry fish while in flight. Hunting almost exclusively for live fish, the osprey plunges feet first to snatch them from the water, sometimes becoming completely submerged. #BirdsofPrey
