The Northern Waterthrush is brown-backed with a pale yellow or creamy eyebrow stripe; under parts striped often yellowish. Often walks at the waters edge in a teetering manner. Habitats are swampy, wet woods, stream sides, lake shores, and thickets. My sighting saw the Northern Waterthrush beside the stream and feeding on insects under the logjam. Needless to say, this made it difficult to photograph.
