Peter and I saw the blue-banded male carrying moss to the nest box at Bridge 3 about 10am. There was an un-banded bird there also. We saw nothing at Bridge 1, but up above the park at the fairy ponds there were 2 dippers singing although we only could see one (un-banded). No sign of the orange-banded bird.
At the bridge upstream from the Park office Barbara and we saw an un-banded dipper singing. And at the bridge between the playground and the band shell there was an un-banded dipper singing. Not sure if these two could have been the same bird. Linda
Bob writes that he saw Mr. Blue carrying material at the end of last week (22?). The question is whether the female is also starting nest construction alongside him? fdl
