Dipper Note 04.05.17

bridge 1 femalebridge 3 male with foodBridge 1 and 3 nests have hatched. Parents are feeding.

Yesterday afternoon I visited both nest sites. At Bridge 3 I watched the male feed 6 times in fairly rapid succession then another 3 times at close to 5 minute intervals. I never saw the female in the 25 minutes I observed. The nestlings were audible during feeding. They likely hatched last weekend..

At Bridge 1 I observed both adults feeding. I did not stay long here. difficult to hear the nestlings as the roaring water off the spillway and the rocks below is quite loud. The female is quite wary as she was last year at the Hersey St. nest site.
