Yellow-breasted Chat

What is this bird that I hear and finally locate perched in a tree near our RV?  A Yellow-breasted Chat who has become #235 on my bird lifer list!

Yellow-breasted Chat (male)

A widespread breeder found over most of the United States, the Yellow-breasted Chat is a bird seldom seen or heard except during breeding season where it will boldly perch in the open to belt out a varied repertoire of songs and calls.

  1. Congrats for another lifer Donna, it would be so nice to be out and about birding again, this lock-down stuff is not very conducive to that. Enjoy your weekend πŸ™‚

    • I keep amazing myself on gathering new birds, and it has been fun. Got a couple now I don’t know what they are….argh!!! I’m going to submit them for some ID help. πŸ™‚ Not sure why this bird was named a Chat, it is in a bird family all by itself. I just searched chatter, it comes from all birds in general. πŸ™‚
