Great close looks of YB Chat and probable Alder Flycatcher at Greenbriar Park in Charlottesville.
Entering from Greenbriar Street go to far side of stream across bridge and turn right about 500-1000 m in the shade. Heard chickadees and in area saw nice low look of YB Chat with C. Yellowthroat. Surprised me due to lack of presence on bar charts but always rhink outside of box and also more common rhe more to south you go.
In same area several flycatchers phoebes least pewee tanagers and a flycatcher with olive back grey front and wingbars. Not a YB due to lack of color on breast and also similar to Willow. Have sewn many in PNW but time of year and habitat are pretty different. Thank s to MR Beamer was able to figure this was a probable Alder life look of this bird and veey happy. Looked like the photo on ebird.
