The Dipper.

The Dipper, by contrast, must be well known to most stream walkers. Throughout the year it lives on the same stretch of river and uses the same rocks in mid stream to stand on. The Dipper is a strong hardy bird. They begin to build their nest in February and March. The nest is built from moss and grass in a cavity or on a ledge. These birds use the same site and nests, which may need to be repaired, each year.
