Dipper Notes 06.02.14

We watched the Dam nest this morning, about 8:00 to 8:30. Lots of action, dipper flew to nest at least 3 times, stood guard and foraged in the stream. We even may have seen 2 adults, but are not sure. We both observed an adult enter the nest, and did not see it leave, but then an adult flew up and again entered. PK

I was able to stop there early this afternoon after a local survey . I found an adult standing on a moss pedestal below the nest much like PK’s photo from the other day. The water flow has really slowed down since last week and I could see that the moss dome is drying a bit. fdl
