Today I saw something amazing. Two dippers in the outer archipelago. They are so fascinating to watch. They look like a ordinary land bird, with tiny legs. But that bird is like a mini mini penguin in water. The bird dive and swim. When they are up on land they do funny thing with their knees.
They hang out in streams, rivers and creeks mostly, but sometimes they visit archipelago and they certainly did that today. I’m so lucky that I got the chance to see them.

There are lots of YouTube films showing this bird, here’s one of them:

Nature magic always gives me hope of a better world. We can’t be serious when we think we are allowed to destroy such beauty and perfection.
