Ospreys, my favourite Australian raptor, frequent the coasts of Queensland and larger bodies of water looking for their next meal. I enjoy watching them circling and suddenly diving into the water, triumphantly coming up with their prey in their enormous talons. They then fly off to their family, who are waiting in anticipation in enormous nests, built with sticks and mainly on pylons due to deforestation of large trees. They have a neat trick of manipulating their catch to face forward so it is aerodynamically positioned for the flight back for breakfast. The growing chicks testing their wings and strength as they grow, are a pleasure to watch.
