> A Yellow-breasted Chat was caught at banded this 6:40 this morning at Dead Creek.  The bird was caught a second time at 11am so it may be staying in the area.  The banding is done on the north side of Rt 17 at Dead Creek.  Park at the fishing access, then walk to the end of the track through the orange gate.  The bird was last seen at the end of the track.
