Yellowstone National Park
Wyoming
USA

Another view of the Madison River in Yellowstone.

The Madison River is a headwater tributary of the Missouri River, approximately 183 miles (295 km) long, in Wyoming and Montana. Its confluence with the Jefferson and Gallatin rivers near Three Forks, Montana forms the Missouri River.

The Madison rises in Teton County in northwestern Wyoming at the confluence of the Firehole and Gibbon rivers, a location known as Madison Junction in Yellowstone National Park. It flows west then north through the mountains of southwestern Montana to join the Jefferson and Gallatin rivers at Three Forks.

The river was named in July 1805 by Meriwether Lewis at Three Forks. The central fork of the three, it was named for U.S. Secretary of State James Madison, who would succeed Thomas Jefferson as President in 1809. The western fork, the largest, was named for President Jefferson and the east fork for Treasury Secretary Albert Gallatin.

彩鷸 Greater Painted-Snipe【學名:Rostratula benghalensis】鴴形目 / 彩鷸科 / 雌鳥 ( Female )。因眼睛大大的,鳥友暱稱彩鷸為大眼妹。彩鷸在臺灣為普遍之留鳥。

彩鷸雌雄異色,雄鳥背部橄褐色,喉和頸呈污白色,胸部上方為淺灰褐色,體色較為接近保護色,幼鳥體色似雄鳥,也具有保護色;黑色過眼線由喙延伸至頭後,背部中央有橘紅色縱斑,兩側為黑色縱帶,兩翼也有黑色縱斑帶,喙黑色。

彩鷸主要分佈於低海拔的濕地,常活動於水田、沼澤、池塘、河邊等濕地,在臺灣的彩鷸多以水稻田為主要覓食的地點,也較容易發現;但因生性害羞且謹慎,一發現不對勁會立刻鑽入草堆中隱藏。而彩鷸也大多活動在一早清晨和日落時分。

彩鷸以單獨或小群聚集為主,有時也可多達數十隻大群,食性為雜食性,以昆蟲、螺類、甲殼動物、蚯蚓等無脊椎動物,甚至植物種子。覓食方式若在低水位濕地,會用頭左右掃食獵物,或是在軟土的地方時,挖掘軟土來尋找食物。

彩鷸採一妻多夫制,雌鳥完成下蛋的工作後,就另尋其他伴侶繼續繁殖;而生下的蛋,孵蛋及照顧幼鳥則是由雄鳥一手包辦的,在某個早晨,與陳大哥兩個人尋找著這一帶四的彩鷸爸爸,總算看到彩鷸爸爸帶著四個孩子從旁邊的雜草堆走出來,享受這一天最美的晨曦淋沐。
