Water Ouzel

No...This isn't the nature blog.  However, that being said, the bird watcher in me was so intrigued by my first sighting of an American Dipper, AKA Water Ouzel.

Two days in a row I watched this little bird feed, play, and bathe in the creek that flows along the path that I walk.  With some marked felicity, I noted it in my bird diary.

(My Canon Power Shot has the capacity for short video recording, albeit not the best quality. And my blogging hasn't been the best lately, either.  Quality or quantity.)

I loved how the water would shoot over his/her head when he/she ducked into it. And it must be a she becasue she can dance pretty good, too.

The water running over the little bird's head was my favorite part, too. Around here, we have been having swarms of what I fondly refer to as shitbirds. I think they're actually dark-eyed juncos, but I most often see them pecking in the horse manure for little bits of grain.

Hi Pam...love this!

Thanks for coming by the Back Porch. I lost you, when things went haywire, last month! I'm taking your link and putting it in a safe place, this time.;-)

What a great film of this sweet bird. I am an avid bird watcher here in the Ozarks. I feed year round and have many species visit my acre of yard. New cat, Mambo is going to make a smorgasbord out of my feeder area this year.

Have a wonderful weekend filled with blessings and void of killer cats!!!

Awwww cute! You just reminded me that I bought a bird encyclopedia a couple of months back and forgot to read it! LOL! It came about when the kids started asking questions about birds I was not familiar with. I must get it out and have a look at it! LOL!Its right up there with the gazillion other books I am yet to look at. Must stop buying books!!!!

Thats a really interesting video! I love how the water jets over its head and just how fidgety that bird is!

Thanks for sharing! I've never seen one of these.

Great share. Thanks!
