Photo from the Field: Ridgway’s osprey

Back from Belize and summarizing results from our study of the Ridgway’s osprey
by Ben Wurst, Habitat Program Manager
Ridgway’s ospreys (Pandion haliaetus ridgwayi) are lighter than their north american counterparts. With a pale eye stripe and lighter plumage on their wings and back, they appear “white-washed” in appearance. Photo by Ben Wurst.
Stay tuned for a series of blog posts (with plenty of photos) from our work with ospreys in Belize.
