Today the Crossbills have out numbered the Siskins.
And, that is a lot!

Subject: [Tweeters] Dipper Egg/Fledge Dates

I saw a fledged AMERICAN DIPPER on Thursday, 25 April 2013, in Skamania County. I'm under the impression that American Dippers fledge 38-43 days after the eggs are laid, so this means the eggs for this nest were laid March 13-18, or perhaps earlier, as I do not know how long ago the young dipper fledged.

Does anyone know if this is typical for Washington? Prior to this, I've seen baby dippers much later in the year, but perhaps because I was looking at second broods?

Thanks in advance.
