Watch this osprey get fully submerged.
I find it amazing the bird has enough energy to take off as water-laden as it got.
Note the “rounded” wing flap necessary for enough lift to fully emerge and propel itself from the surface carrying not only the fish but a few pounds of water caught up in its feather (integumentary) system.
This is a follow up to last weeks post asking
Weezie asked “so what can I use for bird safe air fresheners”?
There is no end to the combinations of fruits, extracts, spices, and herbs you can use to make your house smell like a slice of heaven without interfering with your bird’s respiratory system.
Individual tastes and experimentation will help you arrive at the perfect one.
