Looks like a small thrush, with brownish upperparts and streaked underparts. Black stripes bordering rusty central stripe on crown, but imms may be missing the rusty crown stripe. Worm-eating Warbler (Helmitheros vermivorum) Distinctive stripes on crown unmistakable, can look vaguely similar to Swainson's if top of head not seen well.Very curious, will often come in to pishing, usually with tail cocked as in 2L 3R, often with crown feathers raised. Has brown or peachy-brown (mostly in spring) throat and breast, fading to off-white belly and undertail.

Adult males in spring have jet black cheeks and throats (1L).

Both walk with exaggerated tail-bobbing, and both have sharp metallic chip notes. Louisiana Waterthrush (Parkesia motacilla) Likely be confused only with Northern Waterthrush.

1L is a very typical look, but note this species is much more variable than most guides make it sound. If not wider, less distinct than on Northern, or less sharply-defined.

This is an identification-oriented page for Eastern wood warblers, and is hugely improved due to the photos contributed by several other photographers.

All photos are by me unless otherwise noted and the codes for others are at the bottom of this section.
