GRAND OLE OSPREY

A word about Ospreys -- Yes, we have ospreys on the island. They’re amazing birds that are supremely adapted to fishing, and are sometimes called “fishing eagles,” even though they are not true eagles. Take a minute to consult the web or your favorite field guide and you’ll quickly be able to tell the difference between an osprey and an eagle. Don’t let the osprey’s whitish head fool you. The dark eye stripe and several other field marks make this an easy bird to identify. We’ll focus on ospreys in an upcoming edition of the Island Naturalist.

Fact or Fiction?
Catalina was once connected to the mainland.
