Osprey Pandion haliaetus

Ospreys breed in the United States along both coastlines, around the Great Lakes, the northwestern states and in much of Canada.  They winter in Mexico, Central America, and much of South America.

In Florida, there is a permanent population of Ospreys that do not migrate.  They nest along both coasts, including the Keys, and in the central lakes region.
