Poem: Osprey, Osprey 

Osprey, Osprey
Hunting Osprey
Skimming the waves and
Looking for prey

Nightblack talons uncurl,
Majestic wings unfurl
A screech splits the sky
This is the osprey's
hunting cry

A splish, a splash, a sploosh! What's that?
Osprey's head snaps all the way back.
Scree! Dive, flap and fly,
Osprey's talons split the sky

Osprey vs. Fish is like knife vs. butter
Or chocolate chip cookie vs.
Giant Cookie Cutter

Talons like knives
Beak like a drill
This Osprey is going
Right for the kill

Osprey goes home
to enjoy her meal
This story's not a poem
It's really real!

Always think of Osprey
Talons like steel
And a beak with
A drill-like feel
