The Dipper is actually a songbird which loves fast-moving streams. Standing on rocks in or by the stream, doing what appears to be knee bends, Dippers then dive into the water in search of insects. After walking under water, they pop up and start over.

With their strong claws and thick feathers, they are able to stand the most frigid of waters. They are found in streams throughout the mountains of Western North America.
