  1. I don't know what type of bird this is, but he had the river all to himself.

    53993183.

    Taken at Zion National Park.
     
  2. Nice Gill, I think it might be a Dipper, did it jump into the water?

  3. Yup, that is an American Dipper. Cool little guys that can even swim underwater. I've seen them dive in Goldstream River and come up with Salmon Eggs.

    Cheers
