September 2, 2019

Location: Merritt Island, Indian River

I'm known as an Osprey
I am a bird of prey
My prey are fish, but sometimes my chicks
Are prey, it's just nature's way.

(Caution: Video linked below shows an Osprey nest being predated by a Great Horned Owl. I thought it was interesting though because I never really think of birds of prey as being prey themselves, but in the end, I guess most critters are.)
