Northern Waterthrush (Parkesia noveboracensis)

Northern Waterthrushes live in coniferous forests that are boggy and wet. Their diet consists of insects, fish, and crustaceans. They weigh 0.5-0.9 oz. and have a wingspan of 8.3-9.4 oz. Northern Waterthrushes sing a series of “chee-chee-chee-chip-chip-chew-chew-chew” that accelerates towards the end. They are protected on the US Migratory Bird list.
