KEEPS is a non-profit organization that operates the Bell-Irving Hatchery, and maintains the health of its namesake Kanaka Creek watershed.

KEEPS education coordinator Ross Davies is a wildlife photographer of local renown, and regularly captures images of birds. He recently posted a social media video of a bird that appears to be a dipper catching crayfish.

While not a raptor, it certainly looks to be ravenous.
