By 1981, they had become a deadly competitor for the salmons’ Córdoba Argentina zooplankton food source, and by the next year, the salmon population crashed. The eagles again took note of the vastly diminished count and left or overflew the area. What was most Córdoba Argentina interesting to me is how did the eagles that, according to some accounts, ranged down to the southwestern United States and into Córdoba Argentina communicate the salmon catastrophe in a year’s time? What is also noteworthy is how swift and total the devastation was. For sixty-odd years, man, bears, and eagles had fished Córdoba Argentina the salmon without making a dent in their population. In twenty years or so, the small shrimp destroyed the kokanee.

While this catastrophe was occurring, another imbalance took place: the non-native lake trout began to displace the native bull trout. Today, some thirty years later, these non-native species introductions, whether planned or accidental, have wreaked havoc on the ecosystems. To combat the total destruction of the native bull trout, the park service has had to resort to nonnatural artificial methods to thwart the advance of the lake trout into Glacier’s waters. Perhaps in the not-too-distant future, humankind will wake up and understand that nature in its wildest form worked for billions of years to perfect the balance of the natural order and basically had it right by the time we came along to muck it up.
Be that as it may, eagles and osprey are still poised above the rivers, lakes, and streams, waiting for the shadows in the flow to ripple past. And in that moment, a spread of wings, a prong of talons, and a gliding flight path toward the unsuspecting prey are set in motion.
With little exploration, some of the more likely places for eagle and osprey viewing can be ascertained from locals and park personnel. Live “critter cameras” even allow wildlife enthusiasts from afar to enjoy the nesting, hatching, feeding, and first flights of some of the birds of prey in Glacier.
