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

Red Shouldered Hawk. Today, 9-14-15, we had one visit our yard. He sat on the fence for quite sometime. All of our little feathered "regulars" were nowhere in sight but you could hear them everywhere, calling each other with their distress calls. The hawk was beautiful. We were thankful that he didn't catch any of our sweet little yard friends.❤️

Hummingbird Moth I love these! They are at least half the size of the hummingbird but just as lovely.
