No, it is not early. Louisiana Waterthrushes normally arrive in the
Triangle area between March 20-25. So, technically, March 28 is a tad late
for them. I say, technically, because we would need to know how often you
visit this site. If you visit it daily, or every two days, and this is the
first day you have recorded it in 2018, then -- it IS late. However, if
you visit this site once a week (or less often), say your last visit was
March 21 and it was not there, it COULD have arrived March 22, 23, 24,
etc., and been about right on time. But, March 28 is not early for this

For example, I saw and heard my first Blue-gray Gnatcatchers of 2018 this
morning along Crabtree Creek in Raleigh. Compared with the last 5 years,
that might be a tad late. But, I had not visited this particular stretch
of greenway since February. Thus, the gnatcatchers could have arrived on
March 15 or 25, and been early or right on time.
