Peter and Linda report that the Bridge 3 nestlings have fledged. They watched the adult male feed one of the fledglings near the nest a few times in a 45 minute period. There were no nest visits and no sounds from the nest. The other adult was not observed. They did see the adult male fly upstream during that time possibly to feed another fledgling.
…an hour at Bridge 3 and saw both the male and female make several trips to the nest with food. The male removed a fecal sack on one visit.
Linda writes that both adults were actively feeding at the nest.
In ten minutes at Main Street nest, saw nothing.
In 20 minutes at bridge 3, saw male make 7 trips to the nest with food, heard singing from nest.
At the main street bridge this morning we saw no dippers for 25 minutes. Then a Dipper flew from downstream and stood in the same spot as yesterday and the day before. No action at the nest.
At bridge 3 the blue-banded male made 5 trips to the nest with food in a five minute interval. We could hear babies singing every time. Linda
