Dipper defies swimming ban

There’s a swimming ban on Ashland Creek: fecal coliform and E. Coli bacteria levels in the water are too high for humans.  The Dipper doesn’t care.IMG_9216

Of course, Dipper doesn’t know the risk.  But birds can become ill from some strains of E. coli, just like mammals.  This warning happens late every summer along Ashland Creek so I am betting the Dipper will be just fine, as in years past.dipper 8-8-09
