On Saturday, January 5th, 2019 the 20th annual count of American Dippers will be conducted on Ashland Creek. The meeting place will be the Downtown Plaza in Ashland near the Lithia water fountains at 9:00 am. From here we will walk to the start of the count at the bridge on Water Street. We will walk upstream on both sides and meet at each bridge crossing for 1.7 miles through Lithia Park.
This is a fun event for veterans or newcomers. If you have never seen a Dipper it will be a treat to observe the behaviors of this unique bird. It is our only aquatic songbird and is completely comfortable living its entire life in or on the creek. We have averaged five Dipper sightings over the last 19 years. They nest on the creek starting in March. Since this is the 20th year I’m inviting any who would be interested to meet earlier at 8:00 am at Brothers Restaurant near the plaza for coffee and/or breakfast.
