The White-Throated Dipper, a charming bird, is often found near swift-flowing streams. Its striking white throat and aquatic acrobatics make it a fascinating subject.
However, capturing them on camera can be a challenge. These dippers are quick and agile, darting in and out of the water. Photographers must be patient, skilled, and prepared to get close to their watery habitats. The result? Stunning images that showcase both the bird’s beauty and its remarkable aquatic lifestyle.
Usually encountered as singles feeding inconspicuously among rocks and pools; swims readily and even dives underwater. Often bobs persistently when standing, and flies strongly and low over the water, with whirring wingbeats.
Loud, repetitive song is somewhat thrush-like, and carries well over the rushing water. Call is a dry “tzitzit.”
