Size of a Crow Compared to an Osprey -- Both in Flight
It isn't often, you see these two birds posing together with their wings spread.
They were flying over a dam when this shot was taken.
For further reference, I researched the wingspans of these birds.
The Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) has a greater wingspan.
According to National Geographic: 5-6 ft or, 1.5-1.8 meters.
The Crow (genus Corvus) has a wingspan of 39 inches or, 1 meter.
That's from the good folks at Britannica.
For those who like to know everything about birds, I did some digging.
People sometimes argue, make bets or, just discuss ravens and crows.
If you get some of these birds in your yard and want to identify them, try this.
