If Osprey were not so common, it would be one of the most popular must-see birds. Ospreys not only look badass, they are badass... The success rate of their fantastic dives is estimated to be 70%!!!! I have seen an Osprey dive over the ocean at Topsail Beach and catch 2 nice sized bluefish in one attempt, one in each talon! The below Osprey was on a nest right next to the Ferry at Currituck. These photos are with my old camera but its hard to mess up with a bird when it's so close.
