DIPPERS MAY HAVE EGGS

I went back to the Dupper bridge this morning, along Baker Creek.  One bird I took to be the male was standing like a sentinel on a rock mid-stream, then moved to rock on the shoreline.  THe bird never stopped watching us.  A second Dipper was on nest and flew out.  We then left so as not to disturb.  I suspect from the behavior they are incubating now.  Definitely not feeding young yet:

At one point the male sang at us.

Near the dipper nest was a pair of Pacific Wrens.  They let us know we were not welcome in their grove of sword ferns next to Baker Creek.
