Dipper Note 11.13.16

Bob reports:

Yesterday, November 13, I walked the creek and found a pair of Dippers at Bridge 2. They were foraging very close to each other.  One had bands and was the female from Bridge 3.

Dipper Note 10.15.16

This wet Saturday morning I made my way to the upper end of the park to check for dippers.  After checking Bridge 3 and the area down to Bridge 5,  I walked up to the Granite St. Reservoir. Just above the reservoir two dippers flew past, one calling in chase mode.

I walked further up the creek and found an unbanded dipper in a pool in the creek below the road to Reeder Dam. The banded male from Bridge 3 was in the next pool above the unbanded bird. Both were actively feeding.
