Thanks, Carol! I have a fun memory of seeing an Osprey fishing. My friend and I were swimming in a pond on Cape Cod. We were close to the middle of the pond, when we looked up to see an Osprey hovering overhead. Then we couldn't believe it when the Osprey dove to catch a fish not far from us! A "fish's-eye" view!
