One morning when we were walking in Aspen, we came upon this waterfall. We stopped so I could take a few pictures and noticed a little bird in the middle of the fall. He is on the far left just above the falls.
While we were watching him, he went under the water and got something. We were amazed. I have never seen such a little bird do this. I kept thinking he might get swept away by the rushing water.
Here is one from further up the trail that went completely under the water.
They were easy to miss but such fun to watch.
Further down the trail, there was an informational sign that told us this bird is called the American Dipper and his presence is an indication of a healthy river ecosystem.
Signs of health…what a welcome sight!
I hope you have a great day!
