It was the Louisiana water-thrush, but might have been the pipes of Pan, so wild and woodland was it.
Water-wagtail, small, or water-thrush (Seiurus noveboracensis).
Its flight is much like that of the water-thrush (either species), and is remarkably swift, firm, and decided.
Another bird which has interested me here is the Louisiana water-thrush, called also large-billed water-thrush, and water-wagtail.
They are the golden-crowned thrush or oven-bird, the water-thrush, the Louisiana water-thrush, and the yellow-breasted chat.
It proved to be the small, or Northern, water-thrush (called also the New York water-thrush)—a new bird to me.

More likely it was a Louisiana water-thrush, a bird I had seen, but had never heard sing.
The Louisiana water-thrush seldom utters its interesting song when on the ground, but from some higher perch or when flying.
At a distance it bears much resemblance to the songs of the hooded warbler and the Louisiana water-thrush.
