After fledging, young Ospreys begin to hunt on their own. Their parents, more often dad, teach them firstly how to fly and then to fish. Dad will fly above them with a fish, quite low so the juvenile tries to get the fish but then he’ll swoop up high encouraging the juvenile to follow. He will do this over and over again until the juvenile learns to fish alone.
However, they often continue to return to the nest to receive food from their parents for two to eight weeks after fledging.
