Yellow-breasted Chat

January 02, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

The Yellow-breasted Chat is our largest warbler although by simply looking at it it seems more likely to be related to a cuckoo. Although it has a varied diet it does not like cold weather. I am sure some survive the winter although it has not been witnessed yet, at least not by those folks that report birds.

I've fed them red grapes, grape jelly and peaunt butter suet. I even went to the trouble one winter of keeping a supply of food heated through the night so they could start their day with a warm breakfast.
