With spring migrations right around the corner and osprey returning to the area we wanted to share this video of an osprey demonstrating impressive fishing skills. We came across the video on ARKive's website. ARKive is an organization that promotes the conservation of the world's threatened species, through the power of wildlife imagery.
Each spring osprey return to the Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) area and can be seen fishing on local lakes and rivers. In partnership with Grand Teton National park Craighead Beringia South is tracking local osprey as part of a national effort to study and understand migrations of animals that spend only part of the year in GTNP.
This fall we tracked four osprey from the Jackson Hole area to their wintering grounds in Cuba, Louisiana and Mexico. Stay tuned for updates on their return this spring.
