The Northern Waterthrush breeds further north than the Louisiana Waterthrush in Alaska, Canada and northern USA. It winters in southern USA, Central America, northern South America and the West Indies. See the distribution map at Birdlife International. It is found in swamps and mangroves.

It differs from the similar Louisiana Waterthrush P. motacilla in having a thinner eye-stripe which tapers behind the eye and in having yellowish rather than whitish underparts.
