Pandion haliaetus - FINLAND/KANGASALA, PIRKANMAA
"The osprey is a true global traveler and is found across every continent except Antarctica. Europe's ospreys breed mainly in the north -- Finland, Sweden and Russia -- and travel south for the winter. This fish-eating specialist has made a comeback in recent years due to a reduction of toxins in their food, less persecution and better protection."
