Louisiana Waterthrush  3     Two birds were singing in the wooded wetland on the east side of the main road where the first bridge crosses the small stream.  This is where the Northern Waterthrush as singing (and seen) as well - all three birds recorded at the same time.  Third bird up at the north end of the park.  

Northern Waterthrush  1     1 Possibly 2 birds.  The first one seen around 7:20 AM in the wooded wetland on the right side of the main entrance road.  There were two Louisianas in that general area as well and all were there at the same time.  On my way out around 9:15 AM there was also a NoWa singing in the wetland on the west side, before the first bridge.  Seen well and singing emphatically.  It could have been the same bird as the earlier one or a second bird.
