Prospect 8/30 YB Chat continues

The consistent YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT continues , seen this morning @ Arleen's pine grove which is the north end of the Butterfly meadow.  Later ,a report from Rob Bate placed the bird at the south end of the Butterfly Meadow . The bird was first seen by Keir.

WORM EATING WARBLER, Black-throated Green Warbler and a variety of stuff was reported on the path or southern slope of Lookout above the Wellhouse. But be forewarned that this latter area has been notably impacted by Hurricane Irene so watch where you go with these hazards and the caution tapes...

From Mike Yuan

Nice activity on Lookout south slope early this morning. Unfortunately had to leave before the chat was found.
Good amount of flycatchers - E. Wood Pewees, Least and Great Crested FC.

Best warblers were Tennessee and Black-throated Green.

From Rob Bate:

Besides Kier's Chat , I think I had a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. Mary E got a good look at it too but thought it might be a Least FC. It did have a significant amount of yellow underneath. Maybe yes, maybe no.
