Osprey typically have 1 brood that contains 1-4 eggs. They build their nests at the tops of trees or tall human-made structures and are never far from a body of water. Osprey rely on fish as their primary food source, accounting for 99% of their diet. Osprey are the only hawks in North America known to have a diet of entirely fish, and they are incredibly efficient. They’ll fly away with a successful catch in 1 out of every 4 attempts.
Osprey are a bird of prey that were affected by DDT. Like Bald Eagles, they are a conservation success story as the regulation of DDT and pesticides helped their numbers to rebound. They are now a common sight around bodies of water in Nevada
