Dipper courtship


Throughout the winter, whenever I saw one dipper encounter another, the competitor was driven off. That all changed this fine sunny spring morning. 

In courtship, the male will strut and sing in front of the female. If he makes a good case, the female joins in the strutting and singing. In this case, she did not. Ah well, the season is young.

A dipper pledges his troth. She doesn’t buy it.
