Dipper Note 05.08.15

Peter reports viewing some mating between the male and female at Bluebird Park this morning:

“I watched for 20 minutes total. Nothing for 3 minutes, then a bird flew to the nest from downstream. Then nothing for 3 minutes, and then an unbanded bird flew from the nest and preened on a rock for about 10 minutes. Then the banded male flew from upstream with lots of singing and mounted the female. The male then flew to the nest, the female remained on the rock, and I left.”
