La famiglia di uccelli del falco pescatore attira un'attenzione inaspettata ai Campionati mondiali di Eugene, Oregon

A nest of ospreys in Eugene have become the event’s unofficial mascots, secondo Reuters.

There is no starting gun nor roar of the crowd that rouses the raptors from their home on a platform above the University of Oregon School of Law — which is visible to the crowd at the 10-day international meet in Eugene.

QUIZ: NAME THAT BIRD! CAN YOU MATCH THESE BEAUTIFUL BIRDS WITH THEIR CORRECT NAMES?

Tuttavia, fans — as they take in the field events and sprint heats — have been delighting in watching the youngest in the nest flap its wings, thanks to footage displayed on the Hayward Field big screen, secondo Reuters.

The fish caught by this osprey — as seen in this Feb. 2019 image — was likely a blue tang. The osprey is the only hawk on the continent that eats live fish almost exclusively, according to The Cornell Lab.

Ospreys are very grande, distinctively shaped hawks, according to The Cornell Lab and its website, All About Birds.

Despite their large size, the birdsbodies are slender, with long, narrow wings and long legs.

We were witnessing the baby bird practicing getting ready to fly. So it was really exciting.
