Yellow Breasted Chat, Song Sparrow (20160215) The last time I saw the Chat
Well for several weeks now the way-laid Yellow Breasted Chat has been surviving do to the assistance of many people to keep it fed and watching its progress. It is a great cooperative bird to photograph with terrific colour.
While it has lost all of its tail feathers it is still able to fly quite effectively. Having it locatred in these rose brambles adds a lot to the environment of the shots.
In this shot you can see where the little bird has actually lost the outside toe on the right foot. It seems that it has actually helped the bird as it is willing to use that foot more often.
