The American Dipper (Cinclus Mexicanus) is North America's only aquatic songbird. Often found perched on a rock in a fast moving stream, they sing a clear sweet song and bob up and down in a funny little dance. They dive headlong into the icy cold water to forage for food. The strange, slate gray little bird who "flies underwater" was the favorite of naturalist John Muir.
