At 8:30 on 3/14/17 I was at the Cooley Picnic Area near the junction of Mt Eden/Stevens Canyon Road. There was a cooperative Red-breasted Sapsucker feeding at the sapsucker-marked base of a large Cottonwood tree. (He was also there several hours later when I returned.)
I rolled down my window and drove up Stevens Canyon Road. Past the first bridge I heard a brief blast of bubbly song, and I quickly found a spot to park and walked back. But, although I spent a fair amount of time investigating near all 4 bridges, I found no positive evidence of American Dippers.
