Thank you for Mary Pickett's fine article (and Jim Woodcock's fine photography) titled “An osprey checkup” on July 25 on Rocky Mountain College's Yellowstone River Research Center project with ospreys. The ospreys feed almost exclusively on Yellowstone River fish and, therefore, they can provide important research information on the health of the river ecosystem. This project further demonstrates the good working relationship of Rocky Mountain College and its funding grant from Audubon and Toyota and the cooperation of NorthWestern Energy and local electric co-ops, Park Electric, Yellowstone Valley Electric and Beartooth Electric and the support of the Yellowstone Valley Audubon Society and its state and national organizations.

Our Montana, Inc., with an office in Billings, has designated rivers to be one of our organization's principal concerns and efforts.

James W. Thompson, President
