About Harriett Raptor

Eight-year-old mother of five, fluent in telepathy, a possessor of genetic memory, a genius and scholar. Harriett holds the equivalent of a PhD in philosophy, biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, and the Homo sapiens’ concept of the humanities. Her understanding of mathematics and logic are beyond Homo sapiens’ current comprehension. Harriett is a thinker, a wise osprey, especially distinguished for her expertise in the Homo sapiens problem.


Juvenile osprey resembles adults, but have white tipped feathers on their back, giving them a speckled appearance. Juvenile osprey eyes are orange; as they mature they change to yellow.

Eagle and osprey are not friends 3 – The chase

The osprey is good at fishing and the bald eagle not so good. Bald eagles often chase Osprey, until they drop their catch. When the osprey drops its fish, the eagle will immediately stop chasing and grab the food mid-air.
