The Chat is present at 5:00pm skulking in the tangle about 30 feet before the Pokeberry Bush. Briefly seen twice.

As you follow it, with the open field to the left and overgrown tangle to the right, looking down the tangle there is a pokeberry bush along the edge well ahead of you, recognizable in part by the bright red stems.  The Chat was seen twice, both times down low in that pokeberry and seen from the side you would be approaching it from.
