Dipper




Dipper in Bemböle 7.3.2015.

Wintering birds appear in Southern Finland in October–November,
and return to their breeding areas in March–April.
The birds encountered in Central and Southern Finland
during the winter probably breed in Norway or Sweden.

I'm linking to I'd Rather B Birdin'.

    1. Thank you, Carol! The dipper was far away and I had trouble getting good shots with my hand held camera. Enjoy your weekend.

  7. During severe winters the dippers show up in the Netherlands, the last time in december 2010. If they did not go any further than the South of Finland, it doesn't surprise me that I have not seen them this "winter", unfortunately.
    Greetings, Kees

  18. Precioso mirlo acuático. En mi infancia los observaba zambullirse en el agua en busca de su alimento con mucha frecuencia.
