Just FYI, there likely more winter records of Louisiana Waterthrush from the eastern US than are in eBird. For example, I know of a photographed one in northern Ohio in mid-winter from over a decade ago, in the snow. Interesting record though - was it in classic wooded stream-side LOWA habitat?

I heard an extremely late Louisiana Waterthrush yesterday on Transis Camp rd on the Durham/Chatham line in NC. It sang a pretty textbook song 5-10 times, though I didn't have binoculars with me so it was not visually confirmed. I figured this was worth sharing giving the impending Christmas Bird Count season.
According to eBird, there are only two winter records of LOWA in eastern North America north of Florida, both from recent years (2016 and 2017). Good birding, PaulOrange Co. NC
