Louisiana Waterthrush Scene C-RICA SER 2 (Parkesia motacilla)

Although this bird looks very much like a thrush, it is really a New World warbler. This bird was feeding on aquatic insects in a rocky fast-flowing stream. After downloading this scene, I'll download a zoomed-in closeup of the bird, itself.

A lovely image of this pondering Thrush. Nicely captured Ronald.
This bird is not a "Thrush," despite the fact that the term appears in the bird's name. It is a New World warbler or "wood warbler," as stated in the Photo Details.
