Santa Cruz County, California, US
Lousy photo. With the lateness of the day and the tree canopy I had no chance of a quality photo of my lifer American Dipper. But I still tried! It was still fun to watch is washing leaves in the creek (why, I don't know) for 5-10 minutes.
IDed to species @ BugGuide.net.
I think this is just a Red-tailed, but the tail is confusing me...
On a lovely little residential stretch of the Coast Road, a favorite plant of Brooke's. Quite a few here - they may very well be self-propogating at this point.
