Louisiana/Northern Waterthrush

Unable to determine species. Probably Northern. Waterthrush very unusual at this time of year (although Northern more likely in that it migrates a bit later). Seen from Pirie-Mayhood platform as it flew from below up into the tree branches right above the platform (only 15 feet away at one point, with great views of underside). Long-bodied, short-tailed, white supercillium, dark eyeline, brown upper parts (seen in flight); whitish underparts with bold brown streaks; completely dark undertail.
