KAYSVILLE — A starving osprey has been rescued from a Kaysville pond and is being nursed back to health for release into the wild.

Davis County officials say it's unusual to find such a large fish-eating bird at a small pond.

Ospreys usually roost near large bodies of water at higher elevations.

Officials netted the bird Friday and turned it over to Ogden's Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.

Wildlife officials say the bird is eating well and getting stronger every day.
