Good... I might get a bit miffed if you gave some perfectly good bacon to a bird... Not that they aren't deserving of such fineries, but... bacon... Very cool pic too, btw...

Osprey's are the only birds (I know of) which can rotate their claws in pairs 90 degrees. So there are two claws on each side like a vise. That enables them to carry their prey, always fish, streamlined.

Cheers
