DIPPER, American (Cinclus mexicanus), is a small unmarked grey bird that is typically found along clear rushing streams from sea level to the timberline throughout most of the province. It breeds in southern BC, and is the only N American songbird that flies underwater and walks on stream bottoms in search of aquatic INSECT larvae, FISH eggs and other food. The loud, bubbling song of the dipper can be heard year-round.
