Louisiana Waterthrush is designated as a Species-at-Risk but can be separated from NOWA by the pink legs and more prominent eyestripe.
The location is interesting however, as they are pretty secretive birds and stick to waterlogged boggy more marshy areas close to deciduous woodland.

It seems that things have got a little personal when everything can be clearly explained. We're all in the same boat guys, conservation of wild bird populations.

I almost stepped on one this morning while opening the nets! Scared the bjesus out of me!
Boa noite Paulo,
Nó Canadá usamos chamados de pássaro á noite em um local. I believe in some places in Spain, they use Acro paludicola calls over night. There is some question over the ethics of using bird calls nocturnally for passerines.
We are currently having success with Northern Saw-whet...
I've never tried to use the spring traps at AuBO, but I think we'll get some with our Fall budget, test the water so to speak....very interested in the wader traps. We have a site that see's a substantial passage of waders through Aug and Sep.
Whats the delivery time like Ade?
