Hi, my name is Kenny Frisch and this is my first blog post to the Utah Birders Blog. I would like to thank them for allowing me to blog on this site. I moved out to Salt Lake City 3 months ago and have been loving the birding in this state. It has been fun getting to learn and study the birds out here and to see the similarities and differences in the birds here and back in Rochester, NY where I moved from.

Today I went searching for American Dippers in Parley's Historical Site. Even with dogs roaming all over this park, I have been able to find dippers here and they don't seem too affected by their presence. After walking along the creek for a while, I heard a song coming from the creek ahead of me. I headed to the creek to search for the source of the song and found the culprit, an American Dipper! I watched and listened to the bird singing for about 10 minutes and managed to get a video of it singing. I guess it didn't have a valentine yet. Here is the video I took:

Spring is on its way.

Good birding,

Nice post! Thanks for sharing. Those dippers are evasive to me. I hope to see more soon. Signs of spring are certainly abounding. It's good fun in the field when all those chips and calls turn into song.

Hope to meet you 'out there' sometime soon.
