Northern Waterthrush

I filmed the Northern Waterthrush in the short video below on May 1, 2010, at the Birdcraft Sanctuary in Fairfield. It was very cooperative for a species that is often heard more than seen. The Northern Waterthrush breeds in parts of Connecticut, mostly in the northern half. You can find them around forested swampy areas, bogs, and slow moving streams. The species always seems to enjoy the edges of the pond at Birdcraft. This individual likely continued on its journey north the next night.
