Louisiana Waterthrush

Conditions  were very similar to yesterday (hot and humid with southerly winds) and as a consequence, we had very similar banding results.  We banded 26 new birds and had 9 recaptures of 9 different species.  We banded the first Brown Thrasher of the season, and the first (and quite possibly the last) Louisiana Waterthrush of the season!  I was hoping to catch a Northern Waterthrush to show the differences between these two look-a-like waterthrush species, but they just were not around today.  Next time I get Northern Waterthrush, I will do a post of their differences.
