Swainson's Warbler can sound very similar to Louisiana Waterthrush. If you
hear a Louisiana Waterthrush in a still water habitat (or no water habitat),
be sure to make a visual identification as well. Swainson's like dense still
swamps (sometimes pretty marginal swamps will hold one for a while) while
Louisiana's like dynamic streams. Odds are an undiscovered Swainson's has
already occurred in CT in the past.
