Osprey

Dutch Harbor, where our boat is moored, is great for wildlife viewing. One of our favorites is the Osprey.  Note the talons for catching fish.  The Osprey circle about 20 feet above the water looking for fish.  Suddenly they will just old up their wings and plummet into the water.  Then they struggle back up into the air, often with a fish in their talons.  Osprey are still listed as an endangered species, but there are several nests on the island, and always young birds every year.Osprey o Dock
