Yellow-breasted Chat in 2016

January 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Our Yellow-breasted Chat remains healthy and alert. It feeds several times a day and there is no doubt now that it will make its last stand here with us in Portuguese Cove.

I placed its food source at the edge of the multiflora bramble to provide it much appreciated cover when the raptors attack. I have provided yellow and purple grapes, suet and crickets. It is an insect and berry feeder so I hope it begins to nibble on the suet which it appears to be doing. No Yellow-breasted Chat is confirmed as surviving our winter according to, All the Birds of Nova Scotia by Ian McLaren, so I'm hoping this one will be the first. I think it may be roosting somewhere underneath our back deck which will provide it protection against wind, freezing rain and snow. If I knew exactly where it was roosting I might even put out an infrared light to provide it warmth.
