The Elusive Black-throated Green Warbler
The warblers have moved on now and it seems like a long time before they will return. During the Newfoundland Winter Bird Count several stragglers have been found including: A Yellow-rumped Warbler, Black and White, Orange-crowned, Cape May, Pine, Northern Parula, and a Yellow-breasted Chat.
Hmmm....the Yellow-breasted Chat - there is another bird that I have spent many hours trying to see. I thought that I had a glimpse of one last month, but I didn't get a picture to verify that the yellow flash sitting low to the ground was indeed a chat so I continue my pursuit of this very interesting and secretive bird.
