The Dipper was the bird study at
Saturday's meeting and Charles Allen
the reader. This bird is eight in
ches long and in coloration plain
gray on brown predominates with
darker crown and paler on chin and
throat. The sexes are alike in color.
The head, neck and body are cover
ed with down and the plumage is
very dense and soft, which enables it
to go under water without getting
The Dipper is a water lover. The
nest, a structure of green moss, is
placed near water, usually behind a
waterfall, and is kept green by the
spray, which constantly moistens it.
If it dries out the birds sprinkle it
themselves by diving in the water,
then going to the top of the nest and
shaking themselves violently.
They feed on the small insects,
which live under water, and are as
much at home there as other birds
are in the air. They can walk on
the bottom with swift, running water
over their heads and can really fly
under water, using their wings as
they do in the air.
The Dipper is a song bird and
sings all winter, never minding the
cold weather. He flies about in the
snow, dives under the ice, and comes
out at an airhole, as jolly and lively
as if it were summertime.
