Osprey Feeding On the Blue Boxes On Cape Cod.


We have an Osprey who really takes advantage of the “blue boxes” on the salt marsh at Boat Meadow Creek. The blue boxes are put out each summer to help control mosquitoes and other insects near the salt marsh. (Click blog link to see other photo.)

This Osprey uses it as its perch to see the fish nearby. He then flies off, catches his fish and then brings it back to the blue box to eat, or sometimes to the telephone pole nearby. Pretty clever, huh? You can see the fish in its talons as he flies away.
