White-throated Dipper in Switzerland
JANUARY 14, 2013
Their habitat is fast-running, rocky streams and rivers where they feed on aquatic invertebrates and insects, larvae, mollusks and small fish. They have their own unique hunting technique – they”dip” their heads in the water and walk on the bottom of streams, using their tail and wings to get downward pressure and even “swim” underwater. Francois Portmann is a professional photographer with an impressive portfolio.
