Osprey on target. Salmon 1, pikeminnow 0.

Striking a blow for salmon restoration, an osprey takes flight with a freshly-caught northern pikeminnow. Oregon and Washington pay a bounty on pikeminnows of nine inches or more, hoping to head off predation on young salmon (though not to birds, of course). Osprey have rebounded from their endangered status, the pesticide DDT was banned.
