Birdtober Day Twenty-Five: White-throated Dipper


White-throated Dippers live in Europe and parts of Asia, always by running streams. They dive and catch food underwater. Elegant little brown and white birds, they have been chosen as the national bird of Norway. I've included a video at the end of the way they are equally at home on land, in the water, and in the air. I was impressed by their superpowers and wrote about them in my haiku.

In its element
On land and underwater,
Then takes to the air.
