Yellow-breasted chat

The yellow-breasted chat is a rarity in Marion County, with less than 20 reported sightings on Cornell University’s popular eBird app. This one appeared along the new Shackleton Trail at the Carney Island Recreation Area on Lake Weir last year during a bird walk with the local Audubon Society. It was an unexpected and exciting find. To join an Audubon bird walk, get more information at
