Yellow-breasted Chat in Potter Valley

Mon, 28 Oct 2019 — On two occasions this morning I saw a YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT on my property here in Potter Valley. It kept about 8-20 feet off the ground in heavy live oak branches. It then eyed, but did not visit, my bird feeders.
Although not unusual in late spring and summer, they become inconspicuous when they quit singing in early August, and this is my latest Potter Valley record by over four weeks.
