Saw these guys out on my field (planted in winter wheat) -- and thought I'd see how good my stalking is....(with a camera) .. Not bad, considering I had virtually no cover to work with.....

Of course -- they probably thought I was up in my hunting blind.. Big Grin

I love the American Dipper bird. They do that silly dip movement.
..v.............DIP.......v.............DIP...............v...................DI​P
dip......................dip................................dip.

I've never seen one in the wild. I don't know if they're around this area of North America. They spend half their time under the water it seems. I love these birds. Heart

I don't understand why they do that dip thingy though. I know it's not to simply amuse humans. Tongue What would be the advantage of the dip movement be in evolution?

What a pretty bird! It reminds me of my conure's bathing habits. Every morning, I give her a fresh bowl of water. As soon as that bowl slides into her cage she jumps inside and takes a nice bath. She really gets in there and gets herself soaking wet.

... then she takes a bunch of her pellets and dunks them into the water to make a kind of mushy cereal. Dodgy

I see you baby, shakin' that ass! (It's a little way into the video, but it's all funny.)

Also Rocket, do you know why the dipper bird does his dip thingy? What evolutionary advantage is this? Is it perhaps something that helps the bird, I donno, test the water? They don't seem to do it to attract a female because I think the female does it too. Just curious about this.

No, I don't know anything about the dipper bird. Ornithology just isn't my field. Sorry. If you find out let me know; I'm as curious as you are.

According to Wikipedia, it's how they feed. Their primary food consists of aquatic insects and their larva, and they find and catch them by "dipping". So it's not a mating ritual or anything like that.
