|Eurasian White-fronted Dipper . |
Dippers are small, chunky, stout, short-tailed, short-winged, strong-legged birds. The different species are generally dark brown (sometimes nearly black), or brown and white in colour, apart from the Rufous-throated Dipper which is brown with a reddish-brown throat patch. Sizes range from 14–22 cm in length and 40–90 g in weight, with males larger than females. Their short wings give them a distinctive whirring flight. They have a characteristic bobbing motion when perched beside the water, giving them their name.

Good frontal capture of this cute bird, Ali.
The surroundings also add authenticity to this lovely image.

Excellent photo, beautiful bird!
Good details, I apreciate specially the natural movement of the water. Very good work! TFS
Very nice photo with the bird squarely placed in its environment. Sharp bird, blurred water.
