  My nephew (2nd grade) is working on a report on Ospreys for his school class. He is not allowed to use the internet for his research, he is supposed to use books and magazines from the library. Someone told him that ospreys can live for up to 40 years. 

  Anyone know of any articles or books that have the life span of ospreys?
