Osprey eats almost exclusively fish, the bird produces it with surprising dexterity. The method of hunting is flying around the reservoir in order to find and select the right size fish floating on the allowable depth and the subsequent attack on her from above. Attack of the swift, but its rate varies, osprey can not dive deeply, she hunts in shallow water, and therefore choosing a dive speed of the bird should take into account the depth, or it can crash into bed and suffer. Osprey enters the water feet forward, claws - hooks and build-up of dense tissue between the toes can reliably capture and hold the slippery fish at kilometer flights - already a prey.
