DOUBLE DIPPERS

There were a pair of Dippers in upper Lithia Park. They were feeding together in the rapids opposite the final houses along Granite Street as you go uphill. One of the birds sang briefly. They were clearly a mated pair working their way downstream. I did not see any bands on any of the four Dipper legs.DIPPER CLR

  1. Reblogged this on lithiadipperwatch.

  2. Yeah! That’s near Sarah and my new house – hopefully we can get AMDI on our yard list!

    • it will have to be by ear, they never fly away from the water in daytime…if you can;t see the creek you won’t see the birds but they are great and frequent singers in all weather…check out John Muir’s great essay (online) about the Water Ouzel…my Subaru’s okate is CNCLUS for “Cinclus” their genus
