Chirp,

On Tuesday I observed something I have not seen before.
In Whatcom Falls Park{Bellingham}, American Dippers were pair bonding.
The male stood tall, pranced, and offered the female a bug.
She crouched and begged, he posed and then jammed it in her beak, only to pull the bug back out.
The dance began again. Eventually he gave her the bug.
Also seen nearby was a Hutton’s Vireo.
Photos can be seen here ….
