Master of Fishing - The Osprey by Debra Martz The title says it all. The speed at which they hit the water is amazing. Normally they have both talons on and the fish is facing forward.
(Unique among North American raptors for its diet of live fish and ability to dive into water to catch them, Ospreys are common sights soaring over shorelines, patrolling waterways, and standing on their huge stick nests, white heads gleaming. These large, rangy hawks do well around humans and have rebounded in numbers following the ban on the pesticide DDT. Hunting Ospreys are a picture of concentration, diving with feet outstretched and yellow eyes sighting straight along their talons. via All About Birds)
