Louisiana Waterthrush (Parkesia motacilla), Francis Short Pond, Coconino County

This Louisiana Waterthrush was found and photographed by Roger Sleeper on 15 October 2017

A very sparse transient and winter resident in southeastern Arizona, this is apparently the second documented record of this species for Coconino County.

The throat of this bird is unmarked and clean white, and the supercilium of this bird broadens behind the eye and is bright white, both good for a Louisiana. An excellent mark is the color of the flanks. In Northerns the underparts can range from yellow to off-white, whereas in Louisiana the underparts are white with a distinct buffy wash along the flank (barely visible) with broad blurry flank streaking (not visible in this photo)
