Blue-winged Warbler-again terrible photo and again the only I've ever seen. I did see this one on two occasions. Sadly, the first when it posed nicely my camera battery was dead.¬†ūüė≠

@stitch58 your bird is a Louisiana Waterthrush

Sorry for the late reply, been busy the last few days. I assume you are talking about the same bird that Seanbirds pointed out with the very clean throat. I'm afraid I'll have to respectfully disagree though. To quote from The Peterson Warbler Guide;

"Throat pattern is not a diagnostic character, however some Northerns show unspotted throats, especially with wear in late spring & early summer."

I'm attaching a blown up view of the throat which does show some spotting, just not a lot. Do you own The Warbler Guide (Stephenson & Whittle)? If you look on page 373 there is a picture of a similar Northern throat.

The Peterson Guide also states;

"Northerns showing strong yellow or buff on the underparts will also show that color on the supercilium."

The bird in question is clearly buffy yellow overall, including the supercilium. Louisiana can also show some yellow-buff in the front half of the supercilium (and the flanks) but the rest should be prominently white. And as far as spotting goes the Peterson Guide states;

"In Northerns the spotting is darker & more sharply defined."

Just compare the 2 pictures. 

The habitat that it was photographed in strongly suggest Northern also. It was several years ago but I clearly remember I followed it from a distance feeding along the muddy edge of an almost stagnant pond (well known for hosting Northerns) waiting for it to give me a clear view. Luckily it popped up on the low hanging branch for a moment. You can clearly see the mud on its legs though. If you look at the first picture that bird is standing in the middle of a free flowing stream. Both pictures were taken in the same park. It has a range of habitats & I have seen both species there in the same day. I know there is variation in both species & they can be difficult to tell apart. I am no expert & could easily be wrong but in this case I just feel the evidence points more strongly to Northern. Sorry for being so long winded.

@stitch58 oops, I completely failed to read your original post, I thought both photos were of the same bird, labeled Northern. I was IDing from the first photo, which, as you correctly labelled, is a Louisiana Waterthrush. I agree with your IDs. My bad
