Povodni kos / White throated dipper

Povodnega kosa (Cinclus Cinclus) sem videla avgusta v Blejskem vintgarju. Pri iskanju hrane je vztrajno namakal glavo v vodo, plaval in se potapljal. Povodni kos je edina ptica pevka, ki se potaplja. Plava in potaplja se s perutmi, s krempeljci pa se oprime kamnov, da ga tok ne odnese. Ker ga ne vidimo ravno vsak dan, sem seveda zelo vesela, da sem ga opazila. 

The dippers (Cinclus Cinclus) dip their head into water looking for food. They are the only birds of their type who can dive underwater.
