On 7-17-2020 for my first ever trip to the Los Gatos Creek trail I followed Bob Reiling's tips from a few days ago to go on the East side of the creek. Parking at the Main St. access is very limited and the trail is very busy. I followed the trail all the way to where it makes a U-turn to an uphill section and started going back the same way I came: as close as possible to the creek. Stopped twice at a scenic spot on the creek without any luck with dippers. Finally I spotted an /*American dipper*/ on a small rock; was able to watch it as it preened there and then flew a short distance to the Western cement wall- not a very photogenic background. Spent at least 10 minutes with it. It looked mostly adult, although its bill sometimes seemed pale. And this bird blinked more than any species of bird I ever observed.
