Cape Verde 5-ESCUDOS (KM28) Osprey

The Osprey is a medium-large raptor with world-wide distribution. It specializes in eating fish, and is sometimes known by other names, such as Fish Hawk, Sea Hawk, or Fish Eagle. The Osprey's wings are long and narrow, with four distinctive "finger" feathers at the end. This feature makes it easier to identify in the wild.

This coin was issued in 1994 only.
