Prospect Oct 21st, quite late Waterthrush species

From John Ascher:

Hi Peter,

Here's my list for today. I was very surprised to see the waterthrush. It was in

the weed patch towards GAP from the Picnic House where there are cut logs. The

supericilium was white and expanded posteriorly consistent with Louisiana but I

wish to study my photos more before making a certain ID. I will send you the

photos as soon as I can find my download cord.
