This is truly an incredible video. Hard to believe this Osprey got 5-6 fish at a time and then got a flounder under 3 feet of water and made off with what looks to be a 5+ lbs. steel head. Have you ever seen a bird shake water off like a dog does?!!! Wouldn’t want to get in its way when its eyes are locked onto you and his talons in the “load” position! Its talons are amazing!
There are 3 sequences in this one video:
- 1st sequence – catches half a dozen fish in one strike.
- 2nd sequence – plunges talons into deep water to grab the prey.
- 3rd sequence – captures a big old fish that looks as if it weighs more than he does!
This is incredible to watch!
