An American Dipper looks to take a morning dip along the shore of a local lake. Seeing him as we paddled around the shore was a bit unusual as I can’t recall actually seeing a Dipper along a lake shore. We previously have only seen them in rivers and streams both of which are considered more typical Dipper habitat. It was good to see this guy working the lakeshore and a nice way to start the day.

There is no strong current to fight in a lake. This Dipper is lazy. 🙂
so smart? 🙂

A favourite bird, not seen one in a quite some time. Saw them often, all seasons, along streams in The Rockies. Tough little bird.
Dippers always amaze me when foraging in those rough streams. Especially in winter when diving into ice filled water.
