Pair of American Dippers just east of Canon City

I found this pair of American Dippers over the week-end working from the ice ledge in an irrigation canal. Actually I knew there was a pair when the one bird I was watching was 'strafed' (ie, an attack from low-flying aircraft') by a second dipper and they both flew out to the nearby Arkansas River. This location has had one or a pair of American Dippers every winter for the past several years as well as in the summer. SeEtta
