“Baby, It’s Cold Outside”

After a warm migratory season, (one that can range as far down as Venezuela) you might suspect Ospreys tend to stay away from cold, snowy climates. Scientists have gathered that Ospreys “shake it off” as long as these conditions apply:

1) Accessibility to fish in shallow waters.

2) Predator-free nesting area.

3) A perch in a tall tree or post.

4) An ice-free season that is long enough to allow fledging for their young.
