Osprey were one of the birds that suffered from the DDT craze during the 1960’s. They are now making tremendous comebacks throughout the world. In Florida, they have become so common most people are surprised to know they retain the status of threatened on the imperiled species lists.
Males generally have less coloration on their chest than do females. Females are generally larger. Neither is a definite indicator of gender.
