In the winter, Pine Island has many breeding Osprey, some migrate from as far as South America. Quite often we see them fly overhead struggling to keep aflight because they’re carrying the heavy load of large Sheepshead fish. Usually, they quickly land atop a tree, post or nest and eat their catch. Osprey are raptors and they predominantly eat fish. Sometimes, you’ll even see them wading around in the shallow water hunting for fish.
