At 8:32 this morning Irene Warshauer reported [on eBirds] the appearance of a rarely seen Yellow-breasted Chat in Central Park's Maintenance Meadow. As usual the word of a chat spread quickly. At 1 pm today the following report was posted on eBirds:

I went up to Central Park on my lunch break and, with three other birders, observed the previously reported Yellow-breasted Chat at the west side of the Maintenance Meadow at just after noon (brief but good looks). The other birders said it had been showing off and on since it was reported.

Good Birding,
Corey Finger
