White-throated dipper

White-throated dipper
A really beautiful bird, with a curious appearance, characterised by its round body, compact plumage, short tail and claws without webbing.
And yet the white-throated dipper swims and can remain under water almost like a fish.
It swims on the surface, it dives using its wings like oars, and walks on the bottom of streams with the aid of its robust claws, searching for aquatic invertebrates.
In the Apennine streams the dipper is fairly common; it is found especially in deep valleys with waterfalls and rock walls, where pools are numerous.
It nests generally under the waterfalls, laying 4 to 6 white eggs that open after 14 to 18 days.
The nestlings are able to swim underwater before they can fly.
