Dipper Note 04.21.19

After a dearth of dipper sightings the last few weeks a flurry of activity has been observed.

Peter and Linda report a bird with food going to the Bridge 1 nest box on April 18.  They also reported two birds seen near Main St .Bridge and Hersey St.

Bob reports seeing two birds at Main St. on April 20 and a single bird higher up in the park perhaps one of the Bridge 1 birds.

Dipper Note 02.01.19

This afternoon I walked the creek from the park offices on Pioneer to above the Granite St. reservoir. I found a pair just upstream from Bridge 2.  A few short singing bouts were heard but mostly they were foraging close together.

On my way back I found presumably the same pair just downstream from Bridge 3. They are likely the same pair seen in this area earlier in January. They were foraging and a few ‘rattle’ contact calls were heard.

Dipper Note 01.09.19

Yesterday, 01.09, I saw and heard two dippers in Bear Creek. One was in the vicinity of Ashland Pond and the other was another half mile downstream. The downstream bird flew upstream and sang while I was in the area.
