Once there was a young osprey. This osprey, also known as a fish eagle, was a handsome gray, white, and brown bird with speckled feathers. He went fishing one day at a pond where he knew there were succulent fish. As luck would have it, he spotted a large fish from the sky and diving down with feet outstretched, grabbed the fish in his talons.
The fish was a catfish, 1 1/2 lbs., and it was too big for the young osprey. He struggled, dragging it through the water as he flew, and alighting, managed to drag it into the shallows and partially up onto the bank of the pond. Then the osprey began to dine on the fish.
