Sensitive species here also include bald eagles, yellow-billed cuckoos, prairie falcons, ferruginous hawks, neotropical migratory bird species, bats, Columbia spotted frogs and western toads. The cliffs also support spotted and Townsend's big-eared bats. Access to the area is difficult. This is not a boatable section of river. Wickahoney is a Shoshone Indian name meaning "beaver."
