PIC OF THE WEEK: 12/18/17 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2017 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Indian River County, FL • Blue Cypress Lake
Notes: In a pose as if to show-off its prize catch, this Osprey flares its wings over a foot long Garfish. This raptor, formerly known as the “Fish Hawk”, is a master at catching fish. It can hover, dive head-first or shallow grasp its scaly prey. Osprey even have specialized scales on the bottom of their feet, that provide them an advantageous grip on slippery critters, such as catfish. Since these and many other animals eat fish, it is especially important that we are good stewards of our waterways and their tributaries. As we have seen in the past, pesticides, over use of fertilizers and commercial chemical waste can be catastrophic to such species. During the winter the mid-Atlantic is primarily void of these birds of prey, but in just a few months they will return for the breeding season.
