|The osprey is a large bird of prey from a distance looks black and white. Unlike other raptors, has a silhouette looks "broken", which is due to the angle formed the wings. Viewed from below, the whiteness of the plumage is evident, highlighting the "fist" black.|
The upper parts are brownish. The pattern is characteristic of the head due to the presence of a
black mask, which is easily visible when the bird is resting.
