Louisiana Waterthrush (Parkesia motacilla), Bill Williams River NWR near Mohave Wash confluence, Mohave County

This Louisiana Waterthrush was found and photographed by Eric Hough on 11 August 2014

Casual fall transient statewide, accidental in LCRV. The prior LCRV record was a bird found on the lower Bill Williams River 31 July to 15 August 1977 by Ken Rosenberg (Rosenberg et al 1991). It is also interesting to note that this summer there have been two reports from southern Nevada (Corn Creek and Pahranagat NWR).

Thick white supercilium, white abdomen with slight tan wash on flanks, clean white throat, crisp brown streaks (not dense) on breast and flanks, pink legs, brown back. Was initially heard giving hard tick/chip note, then seen bobbing as it foraged along the bank of the river.
