Osprey

Erika and I found ourselves at the Bill Frank Jr National Wildlife Refuge on 31 August 2021. An Osprey soared overhead. These fish-eating raptors breed in Washington and across much of northern North America and Europe across central Asia to the Asian Pacific Coast. Ospreys winter in Cebtral and northern South America, Africa, India, southeast Asia, and Australia. Bierregaard et al. (2020) calculate that, since Ospreys live up to 20 years, they may well fly, in their lifetimes, over 124,000 miles.
