We present sighting data of the Rufous-throated Dipper (Cinclus schulzi) in Cordillera de Sama, Tarija Department, Bolivia. We visited 17 rivers and streams, but we attained only 12 sightings in 4 water courses, corresponding to a minimum of 10 individuals: 4 pairs, a solitary individual and a fledging. Dippers were recorded in clear water courses, but were absent in sites contaminated with livestock waste. We confirm the presence of Cinclus schulzi in the Cordillera de Sama Biological Reserve and its nesting in the area. Furthermore, we present data about foraging behaviour and interactions with other species.
