Thank you for your perspective. I suspected some of what you have pointed out. In researching the background, I came across a note about the falcon population being half of its former size. And I found references of "multi-use" that raised some concerns in the back of my mind. My 'backyard' in southern California has suffered similar abuses, but given the density of human population here, on a larger, more damaging scale.
Perhaps I had a romantic notion about Idaho being pristine, but with all those "1A" license plates, I guess it should be expected that some of the beauty nearby would be compromised.
