The Osprey is a special inhabitant of Southern Michigan that is a thrill to behold. Once decimated by man-made pollution and only observed in the upper peninsula, their population in the South is on the increase and they can be observed fishing along the state's lakes and streams. Ospreys are fascinating because they asphyxiate their prey.
