Spawning watch


Kokanee are filling local creeks in preparation for spawning, after which their carcasses will become available to many other creatures. Those creatures are already standing by in anticipation.

A Kokanee salmon enters the creek to spawn.

Standing by to pick off the dying fish are ravens.

A juvenile Bald Eagle looks down on a creek with impatience.

Turkey Vultures soar overhead in anticipation of a feast.

And a Great Blue Heron watches from beside the creek.
