Male Osprey provide most of the food for the family while the mother remains at the nest for much of the summer. Nesting and Migrating Behaviour The Pandionidae family has one species of osprey, and this particular species of Osprey thrives in most parts of the world (except the Polar Regions).
They breed commonly in most areas of Canada and the United States and these birds migrate up to 8000km to South and Central America.
Osprey are adaptable birds and are able to nest in natural and artificial structures close to water including at the top of dead trees, hydro poles, duck blinds, microwave towers and navigation light towers respectively.
Osprey as Indicator of the Health of the Environment Since osprey are at the top of the aquatic food web they can be regarded as an indicator of the health and productivity of an ecosystem.
