Another Dipper Nest
- Wed, 27 Feb 2013 -- This afternoon at the Cape Horn Dam and Van Arsdale Reservoir on the Eel River, I watched an AMERICAN DIPPER collecting moss nesting material from the rocks below the dam, carrying it to the dam, flying through the water cascading down the face of the dam, and emerging through the water minutes later without it. I saw this three times. The nest site is hidden from sight by the sheet of water, and it's hard to believe that there is space for a nest back there.
