A fisheries technician for dam owner Avista, uses a radio antenna to track tagged bull trout in a stream that feeds into Noxon Reservoir. Biologists track a handful of tagged fish daily to try and learn about their migratory movements, which a series of dams on the nearby Clark Fork River have severely impeded.

A vulnerable (IUCN) male lesser prairie-chicken (Tympanuchus pallidicinctus) that was caught in a walk-in trap to be radio collared. Lesser prairie-chicken numbers have declined drastically all through their limited range in the Southern Great Plains in recent years. Biologists fear that this species could be lost without habitat improvement such as the marking of fences that the birds often hit in flight, as well as the restriction of wind turbine farms that cause major disruption to the bird.
