(Cinclus cinclus)

11. The Dipper

This spritely little bird, clad in brown-black with a white bib, is a lover of dancing waters. We find it on the hurrying stream that rushes recklessly from the hills. The spot that pleases the Dipper best is the waterfall. Here it plays in and out of the current, gathers water grubs, etc., and in the springtime builds its nest. The nest, a well-made domed structure of moss, grass and so on, is usually under a ledge of the rocks, often where its moss is kept green by spray from the fall.
