Water-thrush bird picturesWATER-THRUSH
675. Seiurus noveboracensis. 6 inches

This species always has a yellowish tinge to the underparts and the stripes beneath are narrow, but prominent.

These Warblers are found in tangled underbrush near water.

They have a habit of continually flirting their tails, thus giving them the local name of Water-Wagtail.

Their call is a sharp metallic "chink"; their song a loud, liquid "quit-quit-quit­que-quewe-u." Breeds from the northern edge of the U. S. northward; winters south of U.S.
