Conservation Status

Northern Waterthrushes are common, and their numbers have increased significantly in recent years. Despite their large population, Northern Waterthrushes are still threatened by hunting from cats and from collisions with large buildings. Pollution, pesticides, and drainage of wetlands are additional threats to the species.


Northern Waterthrushes often live in habitat located near rivers and streams. They can also be found in wooded swamps, bogs, and thickets bordering wetland area.
