In an act of daring, a lone osprey knows no limits when it comes to pursuing its aquatic prey. Trout make the journey up the Yellowstone River to the place where the river tumbles more than 400 feet over Upper and Lower Yellowstone Falls. Piscivorous, or fish eating, species in the area include the bald eagle, the American white pelican, the common loon and California tern. These avian Yellowstone nesters congregate at Yellowstone Lake, which lies below the falls, gorging themselves on cutthroat trout all season long.
