Thread subject: Amazing Osprey Wings
Name Date Message
cathy 04/01/05 02:19 pm When the ospreys spread their wings, I think how strong and determined they must be. Returning from the South, its 15 hours over water from South America to Hispanola - then all the way to Cuba, Florida and up the coast. I went to a talk at the Audubon society where we were told how hazardous the long trips over water are.
Tiger 04/01/05 03:02 pm It is truly amazing how long an osprey can stay on the wing

Back in 2002 a young osprey, which was satellite tracked, migrating from Scotland got blown way out into the Atlantic. Amazingly after 60 hours on the wing it made it back to Portugal.

Shelley 04/01/05 05:52 pm For more info on this, watch *Winged Migration*. It is truly astounding!
Celeste 04/01/05 07:01 pm I liked Winged Migration and was in awe of the movie. However, recently I have read here and there that there were people who were against the way the birds were "used" in the movie. I believe this movie was a means of enlightening people not to take our wildlife for granted and that in protecting our wildlife, we protect our earth. If there is anyone out there that has not seen this movie...it is indeed astounding!
Marie 04/03/05 10:16 pm There will always be people that can't sit and watch a movie like this without making negative comments and tearing it apart. It is truly THEIR LOSS when they fail to be lifted from their 'stuck-to-the-ground situation' in this world and not be MOVED by the movies awesome accomplishment. This is a movie that can create a new level of awareness and understanding for us of these incredible, feathered, flying machines. If receptive, one can experience the pure pleasure of flight. The movie also enlightens the human race to the harrowing journeys that these creatures are subjected to in their life times. Winged Migration gives you the whole experience and much more........I own the DVD now, the CD of the music and viewed it in the theater X 6. It was indeed a Great Movie
