Wyoming's Snake River is home to many creatures--elk, moose, coyotes, beavers, and birds of all kinds. It is winter, and the animals are searching for food--for grass and twigs under the snow, for plants and seeds in the cold water, or for the bits and bones leftover from another animal's meal. High in the sky, a bald eagle soars in lazy circles. It sees the bare trees, the blanket of snow covering the land, and the dark ribbon of water that is the Snake River. From the air, the eagle watches each creature. And it, too, searches for food. As it circles over the moving water, it watches for fish, waiting for one to come near the surface and become its supper.
