The article discusses a study that determines whether plumage coloration is a valid criterion for defining and identifying White-throated Dipper types and its distribution in Spain. It refers to two types of White-throated Dipper existing in Spain, the Cincluse cinclus (C.c.) in the northwestern and central regions and C.c. aquaticus in the eastern and southern regions. Dippers were captured with mist-nets in ten representative zones within the Dippers' range in Spain. It suggests that plumage features alone cannot determine these birds.
