Northern Waterthrush and Louisiana Waterthrush Comparison

I took 3 of my photos and put them into one to compare the Northern Waterthrush with the Louisiana… I wish I had taken a better Northern Waterthrush photo to use for this comparison. However, I think its cool to see the more streaky breast of the Northern, the thinner eye stripe behind its eye which is usually more buffy and the streaking into the throat. ┬áThe bill is bigger on the Louisiana but that can not be appreciated in this photo… The eyebrow stripe is usually bolder and does not narrow behind the eye and its throat lacks any streaking..
