Photo Wanted

The Rufous-throated Dipper or Argentine Dipper (Cinclus schulzi) is an aquatic South American songbird that is classified as "Vulnerable" in its natural habitat due to reservoir construction, hydroelectric dams and irrigation schemes. Its current population is estimated at 3,000 to 4,000.

It lives along rapid rocky streams in the Andes at 800 metres to 2500 metres in elevation; and breeds in the alder zone at 1500 metres to 2500 metres in elevation.
