This afternoon an Osprey perched in a tree at the edge of woods overlooking a small pasture in my back yard.  It scanned the pasture, often looking directly downward.  It certainly looked to be actively hunting, though it flew off after ten minutes or so without any attempt to grab anything.  I have read that Ospreys do eat non-fish prey items less than 1% of the time, but I have never seen this behavior before.
