BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – In the above image, an osprey heads home from Jetty Park with the catch of the day – a crevalle jack for dinner in this great photo taken by Thomas Lynch.
The crevalle jack, also known as the common jack, black-tailed trevally, couvalli jack, black cavalli, jack crevale or yellow cavalli, is a common species of large marine fish.
The crevalle jack is distributed across the tropical and temperate waters of the Atlantic Ocean, ranging from Nova Scotia, Canada to Uruguay in the west Atlantic and Portugal to Angola in the east Atlantic, including the Mediterranean Sea.
The osprey or more specifically the western osprey — also called sea hawk, river hawk, and fish hawk — is a diurnal, fish-eating bird of prey with a cosmopolitan range.
It is a large raptor, reaching more than 2 feet in length and 71 inches across the wings. It is brown on the upperparts and predominantly greyish on the head and underparts.
