American Dippers Take Rare Stab At City-Dwelling in Ashland

Barbara Massey and Bob Quaccia discuss a nest of American Dippers in an Ashland Daily Tidings article by Vickie Aldous. Several of these small, water-loving birds have made their nest under the Water Street Bridge in downtown Ashland. The young dipper chicks have recently begun to investigate the quieter pools along the edge of the creek. Before the chicks had even developed enough to leave the nest, however, the adult dippers were fully committed to their children, giving the Klamath Bird Observatory an opportunity to band the dippers. However, as Barbara explains, observatory staff did not handle the chicks. The full article can be read on the Daily Tidings’ website.
