Can you Find the Water Ouzel Nest? c. 1918-1935

While the Water Ouzel's nest (also known as American Dippers) is barely seen on the cliff to the right, photographer Robert B. Rockwell unintentionally caught a stunningly beautiful Colorado River scene as well.  Rockwell was an early Nature Conservationist and avid ornithologist. He started volunteering at the Museum in 1913 and later became a trustee. Boyd Fletcher scanned this 5 x 7 glass negative from a collection rarely seen by the public. Check back to see what Boyd discovers next.
