Western Birding Trip Part 3 (Yellow-breasted chat)

Although the Yellow-breasted chat has a raucous call, the bird itself is very secretive and to see one actually perch for a photograph can take a considerable amount of searching and patience. I always tell people bird photography is very similar to angling, hours can be spent just waiting for the right moment. I really think that birdwatching/photography leaves less of a "human footprint" than angling and that is why I no longer fish and have that fishy smell about me, at least I don't think I do!
A big thanks to Russell Cannings for letting me know of a reliable spot in the Okanagan Valley where this beautiful bird could be observed.
