YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT

This southern breeder is found in few locations in Ontario.  Point Pelee National Park and Pelee Island are both home to this nesting species.  They usually arrive in early May and quite quickly set up territories.  They prefer shrubby habitat, look around Fish Point on the Island and in the restored savannah areas at Point Pelee National Park.

Despite its bright yellow chest, loud song, and conspicuous display flights, the Yellow-breasted Chat is easily overlooked because of its skulking nature and the denseness of its brushy haunts.

Adult Description
Medium-sized songbird.
Bright yellow chest and throat.
Olive-green back.
White spectacles.
White belly and undertail.
Long tail.

Immature Description
Juvenile lacks yellow and has dusky spotting on throat and chest.
