Near fresh and salt water on the east coast.
a normal Osprey can live 7-10 years.
Scientists have studied ospreys which migrate from Sweden to Africa. They can migrate 4,200 miles, travelling 162 miles a day on average. However, ospreys often take 'breaks' of up to a week while migrating.
The Osprey is the only species in its family. It's unique and quite unmistakeable when a person sees it up close. But just as an aside, there's something I find quite fascinating about the Osprey, and that's about their nests.
The nests are made of twigs, sticks and branches and lined with smaller twigs, moss, grasses, bark, fish bones, and some other materials. They will also reuse their nests year after year. Every year they continue to add sticks, which makes the nest ending up being absolutely huge. Their nests may be more than seven feet across and more than five feet deep.
The same as any other bird - by mating, nesting and laying eggs.
One adaptation of an osprey is that it has very sharp claws, which help catch and hunt prey. They also have a large wingspan which helps them fly and glide over bodies of water.
