For a long time, I've been trying to see Yellow-breasted Chat on the Lake
Saltonstall power line trail.  I've heard it many times but the vegetation is so
thick that I've not been able to get a glimpse. Today it happened. 

After sifting through the billions (overestimate) of Common Yellowthroats in the
endless thickets, one larger bird flew off and I tracked it down. 
It sat up and looked at me for a few brief seconds allowing great views.
