Louisiana Waterthrush Nest

LOWA nest

This is an example of the nests we were looking for, only this one isn't invisible. Typically five eggs, incubation starts on the fourth egg for thirteen days , then the altricial nestlings stay in the nest for nine days, single brood, unless the nest is lost to predation or flooding. This picture was taken by Lessia C Marshall-Rosenberger on her research plot.
