At the risk of over explaining-for those on this list who are less familiar with esoteric birding terms.

A person "dips" on an effort to see a particular bird when unsuccessful in that pursuit.

Thus Lars' flock of dippers-those who missed the ruff this morning.

Unruffled was a clever clue.

Loving the word play.
