Osprey Nest

One of the first things you may see as you paddle out to the wrecks is an osprey nest in a tree on the shoreline. Known as the “fish hawk,” ospreys are mid-sized raptors, birds of prey, that live near water. Ospreys stay with the same mate for life and often return to the same nest every year. Each year, their nests grow larger as they continue to add sticks and other materials. Ospreys live in the Mid-Atlantic region from March to August, which is their breeding season. At the end of the summer, they fly to Central and South America for the winter.
