Do Ospreys migrate? If so, where do they go?

Ospreys are extremely long-distance migrants that breed in North America and migrate to Central and South America each winter. An Osprey may travel more than 160,000 migration miles during its lifetime. During a mere 13 days in 2008, one Osprey flew 2,700 miles - from Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, to French Guiana, South America (Cornell Lab of Ornithology)
