In August, young Ospreys leave their nests and learn to hunt with their parents – grabbing fish out of rivers and lakes all over the state. They are amazing anglers with specially adapted feet to catch and hold slippery fish. Head over to the water to see them in action. In September they will start their migration to South America for winter.
Adult Ospreys have yellow eyes – juveniles start off with red eyes that transition to orange and finally yellow.
