Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Shy and difficult to see in deciduous forest with dense understory, often near water. Listen for its loud, sweet song, similar to Louisiana Waterthrush but without the complex ending. Plain buffy-brown coloration with rufous crown and dark eye-line. Pink legs and disproportionately large, sharp, flesh-colored bill. Shimmies tail side-to-side as it slowly forages on the forest floor, investigating fallen leaf litter for food.
