Hunting Osprey

This is truly incredible video. I can’t believe this Osprey got 5-6 fish at a time, then got a flounder under 3′ of water, and then made off with what looks to be a 5+ lb. steelhead.

I’ve never seen a bird shake water off like a dog does – wouldn’t want to get in the way of him when he’s got his eyes locked and his talons in the “load” position!

There are 3 sequences in this one video:

1st sequence he catches half a dozen fish in one strike.

2nd sequence he plunges talons into deep water right to the bottom to grab his prey.

3rd sequence he captures a big old fat fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does!

This is incredible to watch (best viewed in full screen mode)…enjoy
