The AErODYNAMICS of an Osprey


bird flying
Ospreys (Pandion haliaetus) are a very aerodynamic bird that can fly at speeds of 80 mph/ 128 kmh and glide with minimal flapping of wings. As this one approaches its nest, it must slow down.This is the 1st in a 4 part series. I took this photo at Lake Sonoma, Sonoma County, CA.
