  1. Cool bird and photos. We’ve been trying to spot a Chat for a couple of years now. We’ve heard them but never seen them. maybe this year.

  3. I love the yellow-breasted chat! It is just too big to be a warbler, though 😉 Looks more like a Robin in drag 😉 What astoundingly detailed pictures – oh how I would love to see this guy so CLOSE!!! The beauty of banding!

    Chats are well named. We know where to go in our county to see them and they never let us down as they are quite vocal. Not only that I think they are beautiful.

  11. Beautiful bird – and nice shots. Glad to see the banding is going on again. So, how do I get to see one of these sessions?

  12. I’ve never even heard of this bird, much less seen one. It certainly is a beauty. I love the final shot – such wonderful detail — even though someone had to get a bitey in the process!

  13. Congratulations! Cool and colorful bird.-It looks like it has quite a thick bill for a warbler.
