From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The white-throated dipper (Cinclus cinclus), also known as the European dipper or just dipper, is an aquatic passerine bird found in Europe, Middle East, Central Asia and the Indian Subcontinent. The species is divided into several subspecies, based primarily on colour differences, particularly of the pectoral band. The white-throated dipper is Norway's national bird.
The white-throated dipper is about 18 centimetres (7.1 in) long, rotund and short tailed. The head of the adult (gularis and aquaticus) is brown, the back slate-grey mottled with black, looking black from a distance, and the wings and tail are brown. The throat and upper breast are white, followed by a band of warm chestnut which merges into black on the belly and flanks. The bill is almost black, the legs and irides brown. C. c. cinclus has a black belly band.

What a lovely image of the water ouzel.
This species will live only in areas where the waters are spotlessly clean.
Sharp and well focused.
The right side of the flowing water/s are almost with a 3D effect. MOST LOVELY!!!
Best and most kind regards,
Mario from Canada.

Hello Jiri,
Very nice photo of this White-throated Dipper in its natural environment. Beautiful colours and good sharpness. Taken from a good POV and in a fine composition.

Gorgeous and hard to capture this torrents bird. Seems able to hear the sound of the stream and the water slide on the wet rocks. Thank you.

Kind regards
