Also known as: Long-tailed Chat, Yellow Mockingbird, Polyglot Chat
The Yellow-breasted Chat is a species of songbird. It was formerly considered to belong to the New World warbler family, noted to be one of the largest warblers. As of 2017 it is considered to be in its own family by some taxonomic systems.
Yellow-breasted Chats are found across much of North America. Their breeding territory covers much of the United States; winters are spent across Central America.
Yellow-breasted Chats have a bold plumage. They are known for their complicated vocalizations; these chats are often heard before they are seen, if they are seen at all.
