I re-found the Yellow-breasted Chat on the Bridle Trail at Hinckley Reservation near the Red Wing Picnic area. It looked like a young bird so hopefully, Chats nested there. Nothing else of special note but decent species variety incl calling Peewees, Indigo Buntings, E Kingbirds, B-G Gnatcatchers, E Towhees, Cedar Waxwings, House Wrens, Yellow Warblers & Com Yellowthroats. No shorebirds except Killdeer--lake was high. One Ring-billed Gull. Mallards & Wood Ducks. Nice close views of a Red-shouldered Hawk. A young Great Blue Heron was trying to master fishing.
I then headed to Beaver Marsh hoping to see the reported rails & Least Bittern. I heard a Virginia Rail a couple times, once from the East side of the trail then later from the W side but did not see it. Dipped on the Sora & bittern. Not much else around except a Green Heron, a couple Tree Swallows. I also saw a Swamp Sparrow.
