The Louisiana Waterthrush breeds in the eastern USA and winters in Central America, northern South America and the West Indies. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in stony rivers and streams in woodland where it feeds on aquatic insects.

It is dark brown above with a white eyebrow that becomes broader behind the eye unlike that of the similar Northern Waterthrush P. noveboracensis. Below is whitish with brown streaks on the chest and flanks. The throat is unstreaked.
