First American Dipper for the fall season

American Dippers come down the Arkansas River as it runs through Canon City, usually arriving in the fall and spending the winter. I have also for the past several years had 1-2 American Dippers stay for at least most of the summer with a pair with an aborted nesting effort a few years ago (racoons got into nest and presumably ate eggs or nestlings). This one was at west end of Riverwalk. SeEtta
