Osprey

An Osprey was sent to Bird TLC last night from Aniak, Alaska which is about 320 air miles from Anchorage. It had accidentally amputated its left wing at the elbow. We don't know how. The amputation was cleaned up by Dr. Palmatier.

Talking with Cindy today she tells me that they are hard to get to eat in captivity. If we can beat that issue we'll have a fine education bird for someone.

Ospery are one of the largest birds of prey in North America, the Osprey eats almost exclusively fish. It is one of the most widespread birds in the world, found on all continents except Antarctica.

It wasn't up to giving me a good picture. Maybe in a day or two it will perch and I can get some better shots.
