  Osprey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is the only member of the genus Pandion (Savigny, 1809), which is in turn the only genus in family Pandionidae.
Here it is treated as the sole member of the family Pandionidae, and the family listed in its traditional place as part of the order Falconiformes.
Other schemes place it alongside the hawks and eagles in the family Accipitridae—which itself can be regarded as making up the bulk of the order Accipitriformes or else be lumped with the Falconidae into Falconiformes— and others again group it alongside the other raptors in a greatly enlarged Ciconiiformes.

 SDNHM - Pandion haliaetus (Osprey)
The Osprey, the only species in the family Pandionidae, is one of the world's most easily recognized birds of prey.
The mostly white crown set off by a dark stripe through the eye is unique among North American raptors.
Rarely do Ospreys scavenge dead fish or take other animals, possibly only when live fish are unavailable, when they are migrating through unfamiliar territory, or when alternative prey are exceptionally abundant or vulnerable.

 Accipitriformes - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Osprey shows a number of similarities to the Accipitridae and is often regarded as a member of that family.
Alternatively, because it also shows a number of clear differences, it is placed in its own family, Pandionidae.

 Osprey page
The Osprey (left, in a fine shot by John Van de Graaff) has traditionally been considered to belong to its own monotypic family, the Pandionidae.
This arrangement emphasizes several unique features of this "fish-hawk:" numerous adaptations for a life of fishing (reversible outer toe, spiny foot pads, nasal valves that close underwater, and more).
