This osprey was going to drown until she bravely reached out. The osprey knew this was his only chance.
The Osprey was floundering in the water and would certainly have drowned so the woman reached out a paddled and the Osprey hopped up and then latched itself onto her thumb.
The boat was then slowly inched to shore. One Osprey saved by the caring of a small group of people. What a happy story.
