Yellow-breasted chat in Moraga, Oursan trail migrants

Kathryn Spence

I heard the Chat singing outside the kitchen window today, then found it later in our Olive tree.

Yesterday I birded the Oursan trail (near Briones.) The (closed) parking area where the creek and bridge are was loaded with singing 6+Cassin’s vireos, 7+ Hermit warblers and 10+ Townsend’s warblers.

5-6 each Black-headed grosbeaks, Blue-gray gnatcatchers, and Lazuli buntings were also numerous along the trail in the live oaks.
