Discovery Channel- Shore Version

On this morning’s episode…

I watched the precision high dive of an osprey into the ocean. The hawk surfaced with a surprisingly large fish -especially considering the shallow water depth.

The fish was heavier than a normal catch, causing the osprey to land on the beach several times for a better grip.

After a few minutes of attempted take off and forced landings, the osprey gave up and left the fish behind. ┬áThe hawk quickly returned over the ocean in search of “lighter fare” for breakfast!

So, if you find a random dead fish in your yard, it’s not from some epic flood.

Likely leftovers from an overzealous osprey :)
