Craig, I believe this is an American Dipper. If you watched him closely when he blinked you would see a white circle around his eye.


I believe that bridge abutment may be part of the Milwaukee Road's line to Enumclaw.


Dipper it is.


Thanks David. From some of my old maps it looks you are correct.


The American dippers are another sign of a healthy river/stream. We get them in our yard too, they have a lower eyelid that they close when they walk under water getting their food. They have a great distinctive call.
