  10. A sweet little bird -- we have a dipper here (an American dipper maybe?) but I've never been able to get a picture of its bobbing behavior -- love the video.

  20. Good morning Gunilla!:) Brrr, it still looks chilly were you are. The sweet Dipper doesn't seem to mind the cold water. I loved your vídeo, I remember you posting another Dipper vídeo, and I greatly enjoyed both.
    Enjoy your Sunday!:)

    1. The dippers actually come here to spend the winter. The fly north for the summer.

  21. It's always great to see this bird in action. I'm glad that I have got such a chance as well this winter. Amazing to see how the bird is behaving in the water. Didn't the sound of the airplane disturb you :-) ?
    Greetings, Kees

    1. We don't live that far from the airport so I guess both the dipper and I are used to planes flying over.

    Also wanted to invite you to SEASONS - a new meme/challenge I started, where any experience of the season goes (so you can use the dipper photo, or any other recent one).
    The thumbnail link is open Monday - Wed. till 7pm, US, Pacific time. This week in the post SEASONS-Spring has Sprung. Hope to see you there!

  37. That's a fantastic piece of video. When you look at the bird, you wouldn't think that it could go underwater like that, but they are so agile under the water.
