We drove out to Naramata and were surprised to see this amazing bird. The Osprey is a large, powerful raptor (bird of prey).
Here is some more information on the Osprey
It is one of the most widely distributed birds in the world. When an Osprey spots a fish from the air, it hovers at a height of 10 to 30 m until the fish is in a suitable position. Then, in a dramatic performance, the bird, huge yet wonderfully light, dives from the sky with its wings half closed and claws stretched forward, and disappears under the surface in a great spray of water, usually reappearing a few seconds later with a fish firmly clutched in its claws
