I had the bird in my hand and it did not look right for a Northern Waterthrush. Ryan   told me to noticed the white throat with no streaking. That helps with the decision that this was a great bird to get. A Louisiana Waterthrush (LOWA) is a rare visiter. Also new for the season was a Brown Thrasher. We ended with a total of 33 new birds with 16 different species. Thank you to my staff for staying through the day that did start getting pretty hot.
