Paradise in Sanders County, Montana — The American West (Mountains)
Wildlife Thrive In Corridor Year Round
Clark Fork Corridor: The Land
Look for osprey and songbirds in the summer. Year round you can see bald eagles and waterfowl such as the common goldeneye. Dippers and kingfishers hunt these waters in every season, too.
Please remember, to avoid disturbing wildlife when viewing them, use binoculars and stay at a distance.
Bald eagles live along the river. In spring and summer, they raise their young in huge stick nests high in the trees. During the winter, they hunt for fish where the water is ice-free, snatch ducks, and feed on carrion.
Bighorn sheep clamber on he cliffs across the river. In winter, you might see them in the field below the cliffs. They retreat to higher, more secluded elevations for lambing in late spring.
If you hear the rattling call of the kingfisher, look for it flying above the river. When
